Are you sitting at home, bored? Listless? Wondering what to do this week?

My, oh my, have we got a treat for you.

Suffer a laugh-induced coma at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival or gain some knowledge at Melbourne Museum’s insane Vikings Exhibit. The week is positively brimming with events for you and your friends to enjoy!

Vikings: Beyond the Legend
11 Nicholson St, Carlton

Melbourne Museum will be hosting the world’s biggest collection of Viking artifacts from March 23rd to August 26th. Over 450 pieces will be featured in the exhibit, some dating back to 700 AD. Fans of the much-loved TV series and old folk tales will be fascinated by the rich and fascinating life of the vikings.

For less than $28, this eye-opening exhibition will challenge your image of vikings as pillaging and plundering warriors with long beards and horned helmets. It’s a lot more than just that.
