Lofotr Viking Museum
Meet the Vikings. Smell the tar, taste the food, feel the history. The Vikings have been awaiting you for more than 1000 years. Welcome to the Viking age.
In the reception area at Lofotr Viking Museum (the Glasshouse), there is a permanent exhibition divided into three parts. Firstly, a room covering the discovery and excavation of the longhouse. Thereafter, an evocative film about people and events at Borg during the Viking Age. Finally, you can enjoy a collection of unique archaeological finds from Borg and the surrounding areas.
The exhibitions can be enjoyed with the help of your own smart phone and headset/earphones.
You simply put on your headphones and choose what you want to listen to – stories about the discovery of the chieftain’s house at Borg, or exhibits from the archaeological exhibition. You can also listen to the film “The Dream of Borg” on your own smart phone. Choose from six different languages. The use of your smart phone will not incur internet/roaming charges.
TIP: If you do not have much time, you might want to listen to the texts marked in red. This will give you the highlights of the exhibition and you can save the details until later.
