I've seen the exhibit. It is wonderful! I finished the Viking part in an
hour or so. (Depends on how much reading you care to do). I got there right
when the museum opened in the morning and got in with no problem, but the
lines were very long the rest of the afternoon. (Just some friendly advice).
The other exhibits at the museum were cool also. Especially the gems and
minerals section!

I highly recommend making the journey down there.
