On March 1st Museum Secrets hosted several dozen bloggers in Toronto for a screening of Museum Secrets: Inside the Pergamon and Neues Museums, Berlin. Guests were also treated to a Viking sword fight demonstration and played trivia games to test their knowledge of the episode.
During the broadcast guests tweeted with viewers watching the show at home on History Television and hundreds of tweets with the #MuseumSecrets hashtag were generated … An indicator of the show’s growing online community.
After the Viking sword fight demonstration, attendees tried on Viking gear and tested their moves!
(They were getting a preview for the Viking story that appeared in the Berlin Museum episode airing later that night.)
Brock Groombridge of backpackwithbrock.com and Mike Corey of Kickthegrind.tv tested their Viking fighting skills.
Along with director David Langer, cinematographer Mark Caswell and music composers Eric Cadesky and Nick Dyer also joined in the festivities.
Eric Cadesky, one of two Museum Secrets composers, tried on a Viking costume.
Special thanks to our trivia prize sponsors: the Royal Ontario Museum, Medieval Times, MAC and Steam Whistle, and to Paulhillier.com for the photos.
