VISIT KAUPANG
Kaupang Viking town is open during the summer season.  Learn about the history of the Vikings' life in Kaupang town. Learn something new and experience crafts, religion and food culture.

The Town
Kaupang was founded around the year 800. The location was significant when the town was established as a hub for trade and production. At Kaupang today there is built a Viking house like they think it could have been. You can also see a model of the town and get to know how the town was located.

Research
Many have dug and researched Kaupang from the 1800s until now. Most of the city is still not excavated.
In the exhibition "What Kaupang Earth hid" you get an insight into how archaeologists worked, what they did and what we know about Kaupang history today. A new exhibition on archeology, the town, trade and power opens in June 2021.

Activities in the Summer season
Wednesday - Family day
The children can participate in archaeological excavation. There will also be a trail with quiz and games. Try the tasteful Kaupang soup cooked in iron pot, made like the Kaupang residents may have done it.

This is suitable for the whole family.

Sunday - Hiking and activities for older children and adults
