What do we do during a Children’s Viking day?
During our Children’s viking day you can try out and learn from Vikings when they do their handicrafts in the village. You will meet Blacksmiths, Warriors (Housecarls), Tailors and other craftsmen. For example you can try the blacksmiths hammer, create something out of wool, make a glass bead or why not bake you own flatbread over the open fire? During certain times of the day you will hear the horn blower’s horn. That is the signal indicating something special is about to happen! It could be a display of Viking games, singing and music, lectures or maybe the storyteller will tell an exciting story.
The museum have several reconstructed buildings and soroundings that creates an authentic atmosphere in the village. Several more houses is on the rise aswell. Inside the exhibition hall you can read about the Vikings everyday life and also watch reconstructed items and models. Inside the hall there is also a café with light refreshments.
