Before museums, ancient treasures could only be viewed by affluent time-travellers and telephone psychics holding upside-down receivers. Enjoy rich history the simple way with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a family admission for two adults and two children (a $20 value) to The Vikings exhibit at the Sarah Jane Williams Heritage Centre, located in Bowmanville.
As a member of the Clarington Museums and Archives triumvirate, the Sarah Jane Williams Heritage Centre celebrates Canada's storied past with travelling exhibits and a permanent display dedicated to the Dominion Organ and Piano Company and character dolls. With a family admission to the The Vikings exhibit ($20), you and three of your closest crash test dummies can explore the ancient technological and artistic accomplishments of early Norse people. Don an authentic chain mail shirt and imagine sailing through turbulent seas on a replica Viking ship, or peruse the array of old tents, tools, and household artifacts. This collection voyaged to Bowmanville from L'Anse Aux Meadows, Newfoundland, where a Viking settlement still sits, maintained by dark elves and curatorial jellyfish.
