School visits

Experience the Viking age together with your students

Adventure and teaching

The Viking Museum offers fun, exciting and interactive lessons for ages around 10-15. Students can experience the Viking age with several senses – see and feel items, taste Viking food, try the workmanship and end with a trip in our exciting Viking ride; Ragnfrid’s saga. The content of the lesson follow the curriculum in history for your grade.

School booking

The Viking Museum welcomes many school groups through our doors. We have chosen to combine an interactive lesson in our exhibition with our thrilling Viking ride Ragnfrids saga. We have different lessons depending on which years the students are in. You can also book lessons on specific themes.

HAVE IN MIND:
– We can accept a maximum of 30 student per lesson.
– We recomment that school groups visit us at 10:00, it is the least amount of visitors in the museum at that time. It is possible to book other times as well.
– We would like 3 teachers/accompanying adults to join every group.
– We do not have a room for eating packed lunch.
