At the House of Manannan, journey through a life sized reconstruction of a Celtic roundhouse, join the crew of the Odin’s Raven Viking longship and find out  what life was life in a Viking longhouse.

Discover the magnificent stone crosses dotted around the Isle of Man’s and listen to some of the stories in the stones.  Explore 19th Century Peel with a walk around the sailmakers loft, chandlers shop, quayside, complete with sights and smells from the Manx kipper yard, and uncover the importance of the sea to the lives of the people on the Isle of Man.

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. An attraction not to be missed!
