Step back in time a whole 1,500 years and learn about the local life of the people in the Iron Age. From the Visitor Centre's café you get an inside fireplace with an historic view up to the longhouses, sometimes sheep wonder around the longhouses as well.
There are guided tours in English at 13, every Saturday (Norwegian at 12), and Sunday (Norwegian at 12 and 14) in Spring 2020.
This Saturday and Sunday we will make 'fastelavenris', which is a bouquet of birch twigs decorated with feathers. The tradition is based on old pagan rites tied to fertilty, today it is more of a decorative activity. We also have 'fastelavensbolle' on Sunday 23rd in the museumscafe.
Café Ask and Embla
