Sunshine at the museums

26 January 2024

There are many traditions on how we welcome the sun back after dark. One tradition is to eat sun buns, another is to get sun-free. Join us for a little round of sunshine and celebration at our museums!

The Vikings at Lofotr Viking Museum were delighted to get sun bowls!

The gang at Andøymuseet enjoy sun bowls for lunch.

At the Fygle Museum they took the time to sun bowls in between recording artifacts and teaching (?) it seems!

Ingeborg and Julie at Sortland Museum and Øksnes Museum are each satisfied with a sun bowl in their hand.

Ida and Kjersti in Narvik, and Julie at Bø Museum have also provided buns on the occasion of the sun’s return.

We can establish that a sun bowl is a pastry where there should preferably be something yellow in the middle. And that it’s not really that close if we see the sun, as long as we know it’s above the horizon. There will be a good atmosphere anyway!
