'Thorsday' at the Natural History Museum of Utah

10/27/2017 - 'Thorsday' is the new Saturday at the Natural History Museum of Utah at the Rio Tinto Center. A Viking actor joined Midday to explain what that is.

On Saturday, October 28, from 1-5 P.M., the Museum is putting a superhuman twist on its special exhibit, Viking: Beyond the Legend with a celebration of the November opening of the new Marvel film, Thor: Ragnarok.

Enjoy an afternoon at the Museum with family-friendly fun including Thor costume contests and giveaways where winners will receive tickets to a VIP advanced screening of Thor: Ragnarok.

Guests will love celebrating 'Thorsday' just days before Halloween and the release of the new movie with activities and fun honoring the Norse god. While at 'Thorsday,' guests will witness demonstrations and pose with a replica of Mjolnir, Thor's hammer, forged by Aaron Richardson, a working blacksmith and historic interpreter. Richardson practices Viking-age methods at his shop in Eden, Utah. Kids can also hear stories about Thor, Loki and other Vikings from actual Vikings. Other things guests can experience while at 'Thorsday:'

    • Hear stories about Thor, Loki and other Vikings from the Vikings themselves
    • Sample Thor-themed food at the Museum Café
    • Design their own Viking shield
    • Dance along to the music

All attending are encouraged to dress in their best Thor-related attire. The first 200 guests to arrive beginning at 1 P.M. in Thor-themed costumes will receive a complimentary gift pack.

'Thorsday' is included with the regular price of museum admission. For more information, visit nhmu.utah.edu/events/thorsday.
