Open Saturdays and Sundays 12:00 - 16:00
December 4th + 5th
December 11th + 12th
December 18th + 19th

Christmas Feeling in the Glass Cathedral

When dusk is falling we light candles and invite you to a calm and restful time surrounded by Medieval ruins in the peaceful glass cathedral. There will be storytelling, singing and music to help you lower your shoulders in a hasty pre-Christmas period, and hopefully you will get the good Christmas feeling.

This event has been a tradition for several years now, and we try to make small changes in form and content to please our regular visitors and make it interesting to attend year after year.

This event takes place at 4:30 pm the same Saturdays and Sundays that the Christmas Shop is open. 

Tickets can be bought in the Museum Shop earlier the same day, or online.

Lussi - a family musical

Lussi is an evil fairy from Norwegian tradition. In this musical performed by local children and youths you get to know more about the traditions and what people used to believe in the old days, like why it was important not to perform any work with circular movements the day of winter solstice, or what could happen to those who did not mark their doors and cattle with a cross. The play is in Norwegian, but with lots of nice songs and music, so this can be a good experience even if you do not know the Norwegian language all too well.

The musical is played on December 4th at 4:00 pm and on December 5th at 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm.

Tickets may be bought online or in the Christmas Shop the same day (if there are any left...)
