The missing gift!

At Bryggen you can join a theater walk for children.

We are in Bjørgvin. Gyda wants to give a gift to Torgeir and you are invited on a journey inwards into corridors at Bryggen to get a gift. Here you meet several of the city’s inhabitants, some to help and others to hinder. Once of a sudden the gift is missing! Then everyone must help Gyda find the gift.

After the theater walk, you are invited to Bryggens Museum, where you can visit the exhibition “Under ground” included in the ticket price.

2., 4., 9., 11. and 16 December. Adult NOK 200/Children NOK 100.
