Middle Age Man
The Middle Ages was an absolutely fascinating era, filled with drama that has brought about a large number of myths. At this permanent exhibition, you get to meet the proud knight on horseback, the poor shoemaker and his family, and the Helligåndsklostrets convent prior, who generously shared good advice on haemorrhoids, arthritis, and podagra. A lot of work has gone into creating various lasting sensory impressions that will take you back to times past. You can even let your children dress up as a monk or a noblewoman, try on the knights’ weapons, and join in on entertaining Medieval games.
