Lofotr Vikingmuseum News

In the autumn holidays week (40) there are extra activities for children and families. 
The scent of tar and smoke - step into the world's largest longhouse from Viking age and see how the Vikings lived. 
In Lofoten, Vesterålen, and the Narvik region, there is much to be explored. If you are looking for insight into local life and history, the museums are the place to be. 
Lofotr Vikingmuseum and all museums/units part of Museum Nord are strictly following the rules set by the authorities to prevent spreading of the Covid-19-virus. 
In the archaeological exhibition and in the cinema, we have an audio guide system. In the Viking chieftain's house and outdoors, there is no audio guide system. Due to COVID-19, we do not lend iPods, tablets or headsets.
Being agile, playful, and adventurous is good if you want to be a good Viking - and whether you are a child, young or adult.

Slide 2
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.

Slide 3
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.
