Story tales for children in the King Håkon's Hall

Håkon Håkonsson - The child king

More than 800 years ago, a little boy was born in Eastern Norway and was given the name Håkon. Both his father and grandfather had been kings in Norway. Many wanted little Håkon to also become king, but there were several others who thought that they had a greater right than him to rule the country. Warriors fought against Håkon and his followers, who were called birch-bones.

How it went, you can learn more about if you come to the King Håkon's Hall during the winter holidays.

The ticket gives free admission to the King Håkon's Hall before / after story time. Only in Norwegian. 

2. March 12:00 and 13:00
