It's time to go back in time and learn about a group of people who had a fearsome reputation - the Vikings!

This digital programme from the Hunt Museum in Limerick will teach 3rd and 4th class pupils all about the Vikings.

Join Hannah Bloom, Education Officer at the Hunt Museum as she tells us all about where they came from and what their daily life was like.

Pupils will use replica objects and real Viking objects from the Hunt Museum Permanent Collection as evidence to learn about what their lives were like. 

Through short animations, a virtual handling session, and the printable activity book, pupils will explore life in Viking Ireland and create some Viking art along the way!

Make sure to download and print out this activity book before you watch the video up top so you can fill it all out during the lesson!

Teachers/ Parents can find out more about this and other subjects HERE!

You can also learn how to do some Viking arts and craft with the video below!


The Hunt Museum holds one of Ireland's greatest private collections of Art and Antiquities from the Neolithic period to the 20th century.

Donated by John and Gertrude Hunt to the people of Ireland, this diverse collection is housed in The Custom House, a 18th Century Palladian style building in Limerick. 

Public engagement is key to our approach with a full education programme and wide community participation in all our work.
