About

The legendary sea god Manannan will guide you through the Island’s rich Celtic, Viking and maritime past from its origins as the centre of the Kingdom of Mann and the Isles, through to the busy fishing ports of the 19th Century and the beginnings of the Island's Steam Packet Company.

Journey through life-size reconstructions and film shows that start in the Celtic roundhouse, see the replica Viking ship Odin’s Raven that was sailed from Norway in 1979 and discover a time when the Island was at the centre of a powerful sea kingdom.

During your journey from past to present you’ll also come face to face with characters telling you stories and superstitions from the Island’s past, complete with atmospheric sounds, sights and smells that will allow you to immerse yourself in the Island's vibrant history.
