The centre consists of a train ride which depicts the everyday life of Vikings, and some of the tools, clothes and resources they used. There is also an additional floor at the end which shows some ancient artefacts and two human skeletons.
It is good for kids and families, but if you are in a small group i would suggest you come to this if you have nothing left to visit in York.
Little pricey for the experience.

This is great, so well done get a true taste of the Vikings. Another attraction York has got right. This is a must if you go to York.

I guess I just prefer regular museums with a few floors. There's a train ride at the beginning which kids might enjoy, then 1 floor to walk around on. It's not much at all. BUT the staff who are dressed up (after the ride) all seem like experts in their field. If you visit this place, you should definitely talk to them. They have tonnes of interesting things to tell you. I would have rated this a 1 if it weren't for them. They're brilliant and did a fantastic job.

We decided for a stop in one of our favourite places, Jorvik. It has changed significantly since our last visit and seems smaller
