Plans have now been unveiled to start an interactive museum in Stockholm to satisfy tourists? hunger for the medieval Scandinavians.

?There is a big interest worldwide in the Vikings,? says Marie Nork, one of those trying to set up the Stockholm Viking Centre.

Like the Jorvik Viking Centre, in which visitors travel back in time through mock-ups of Viking York, Nork wants the new centre to be more accessible than a normal museum. The aim is to site it in central Stockholm on a 6,750 square metre site. Glass display cases will be conspicuous by their absence.

?We?re looking into how we can use virtual reality to tell the Viking story,? Nork says.
