We visited Jorvik Viking Centre just after it re-opened after a major refurbishment. Found the ride around the viking village brilliant, but the displays at the end were not as exciting. Highly recommend for older children / teenagers - not too much to keep younger children excited. Great value for money though and highly educational.
