​Monday to Friday in week 10 there will be various extra activities for the children at Lofotr Vikingmuseum due to local winter holiday school break.

​During the holiday season the museum is open evenings for those of you who wish to take part in a Viking feast. The museum is closed on daytime but exhibiton halls are available on the evenings for the Viking feast. 
​In addition to the open longhouse, the archaeological exhibition halls and the film, there is more going on on specific days.

Food and beverages are an important part of a day out at the festival. 
Draw the best Viking. By Olaf's tent, there will be a drawing competition.
An exciting journey back in time. A wonderful, living museum with dedicated guides. Was also given a brief, supplementary account of how the museum came about.

Be a Viking
It is the best cultural museum I have ever visited. It is a hands on museum where you can touch everything and experience how Vikings live. You can raw a giant Viking vessel, a great experience, do not leave the museum without doing it.
Earibal (TripAdvisor juli 2014)
Back to the Viking Age. The longhouse at Borg is truly worth a visit! Staff dressed in contemporary costume carry out everyday chores, providing insight into what daily life was like during the Viking Age. Cooking over an open fire and various handicrafts are also fascinating things to see. The Viking Festival is arranged every year around mid August. In 2017, it was from August 9 to 13, and 150 Vikings from home and abroad made camp down by the fjord where the Viking ship was moored. Here you can also see various performances, musical events, mock combat and you can also take part in archery and axe-throwing. A variety of handicrafts made by various skilled artisans are also available for purchase.
