Viking Ship Norseman Visits CBMM June 21-23

CBMM_NorsemanatCBMMLOWRES (263 x 400)From June 21-23, the Viking ship Norseman will be at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) in St. Michaels, MD.

The 40-foot half-scale replica of the famous Gokstad ship will offer CBMM visitors a real-life look at a Viking ship and the type of people who sailed them more than 1,000 years ago. The ship will be available for viewing dockside, with limited, free rides available for CBMM visitors, weather permitting.

The Norseman’s crew will wear authentic Viking attire at a small encampment, which will be complete with iron and woodworking tools. The Viking ship has sailed the seas of many countries, and annually participates in festivals in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.

This will be the second CBMM visit of the Norseman, which represents Leif Ericson Viking Ship, Inc., headquartered in Swarthmore, PA. Rides will be scheduled on site, with no advanced reservations available. For more information about other upcoming CBMM events, visit, or call 410-745-2916.
