The museum is temporarily closed due to renovations and refurbishment. Look forward to the museum's grand reopening in the autumn of 2024, featuring exciting new exhibits, a new museum shop, and public areas. In the meantime, why not explore the Iron Age Farm at Ullandhaug? Here, you can experience an authentic glimpse into the Migration Period while waiting for the Archaeological Museum to reopen its doors.

The Iron Age Farm is open every day throughout the summer and on Sundays for the rest of the year. The peak season runs from June 23 to August 18, with daily opening hours from Monday to Sunday, 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Guided tours are held at 12:00 p.m., 1:00 p.m. (in English), and 2:00 p.m. Additionally, there are events such as whittling, blacksmithing, dyeing with plants, and weaving on the wrap-weighted loom on some weekends.

A world of discovery awaits you at the Archaeological Museum

Explore exhibitions that reveal skeletons and selected finds from the past

Among these, you'll find one of the best-preserved polar bear skeletons in the world, discovered and excavated from a cellar on the island of Finnøy. The museum also features beautiful jewellery and objects made by talented goldsmiths in the Viking Age.

The museum's artefacts carry stories and mysteries waiting to be explored. Don't miss the exciting guided tours that provide deeper insight into our prehistory.

The exhibition 'Fabulous Beasts - from the Iron Age and Viking Age' invites you on a magical journey back to Iron Age Scandinavia, to a time when a different relationship with animals shaped people's beliefs and imaginations, and importantly influenced the beautiful things they created, used, and surrounded themselves with.

After a fulfilling day, you can enjoy a well-deserved break at the museum's café Ask and Embla. Here you can savour a tasty cup of coffee, a delicious lunch, and tempting cakes while reflecting on the day's impressions.
