This year’s summer exhibition presents the history of the workers’ movement in Vesterålen. Through video games, films, objects, images and text, the exhibition displays working life in Vesterålen and in Øksnes. The history stretches from the 20th century to present day. The exhibition is designed specifically for adolescents and young adults. It is subtitled in Norwegian and English.
For the little ones, we’re arranging “The Excavators”, an archaeological activity where the children dig up bones and get to wonder and learn about animals and nature (recommended age 5-12 years).
