Family Drop-in: Viking Sun Compasses

  • Corinium Museum Park Street Cirencester, GL7 2BX UK (map)

Make a hand-held Viking sun compass to help you navigate out of the museum and across the high seas. The vikings were extraordinarily good sailors and navigators. Many researchers believe that they used hand-held sundials as simple compasses to help them navigate. Create one of your own in this make and take art activity and test it for yourself.

Cost £2,50 per child, £1.50 for members. Suitable for ages 5 and above. Telephone - 01285655611 Email -
