What happens in May 2020
Spring is a great time in Lofoten! In May the animals come out on pastures around the museum when weather permits, and the Viking ship comes on the water. It's bright outside and the midnight sun season returns just before the month changes to June.
Opening hours are increasing and in May the museum is open every day between 10:00-17:00.
