The Vikings look forward to visits from families and children during the Easter holidays. Join us for easter with vikings 2022.

 Who stole the chieftain’s horse??? 

The Viking Chieftain and the lady of the house at Lofotr lived in the longest longhouse ever found – not only in Lofoten but in the world of the Vikings. They kept animals on their farm, probably pigs, sheep, cows, chickens, and horses.

The horse was very important. They could carry more than the Vikings and were vital to farm work.

But now!! The finest stallion of the Viking Chieftain has gone missing! The Viking Chieftain is in desperate need of help to find the thief. Follow the leads given to you through the museum – and it might be you that help the Viking Chieftain.
