The Dutch TV presenter Klaas van Kruistum was at Lofotr Viking Museum on Tuesday 14 March. Together with the crew, he recorded an episode of the children’s program “Klaas Kan Alles”.
In the program, Klaas performed a number of challenges that were inspired by the Viking Age. Klaas dressed up as a Viking, and with the help of Lofotr guides conducted some tests such as making Viking lamb soup, guiding a group of tourists, throwing an axe and trying to win in a balance game against one of the Lofotr craftsmen.
Although the tone of the program is light and fun, it is important for Lofotr Viking Museum that the communication of the Viking Age is correct and authentic. Thanks to this cooperation, Lofotr can also reach Dutch children and young people. This experience can be an inspiration to improve our offer to Norwegian children and young people, and beyond.
