Viking Mice are Coming!
Look out for the Viking Horde!
Children love our mouse hunt around the museum. This year as part of the summer exhibition, 40 beautiful hand-made museum mice are all getting dressed up in special costumes. Vikings : Fact and Fiction will be a great exhibition that they all want to join in with. Every mouse has their own name and character and a special (genuine) Viking name. You will find the Viking Mice hidden around the museum and around Alnwick town shops.
As well as looking for all the mice, you can also adopt one, which is yours to keep once the exhibition is over. Your name as adopter can also be shown on the website, if you wish, during the time of the exhibition.
Adoption per mouse is £10 for individuals or £25 for companies. (If you are a company, please contact us).
There are lots of different mice, all of whom have different personailties, so there's bound to be at least one that you love! Click on the images below for more details of each.

"Had the most wonderful time looking for mice in Alnwick this week. Thank you to all the shops that participated. I loved your displays and came into the shop as well as it tempted me to see what you had to offer. Everyone was so welcoming. What a credit to the town. My friends on Facebook enjoyed the story too.
