Normally re-enactment events are a family affair but my husband and son decided they needed a rest. And I really wanted to take a look at the museum. Lucky for me, I got the chance to join two of my friends from the Yggdrasil Vikings.
And the museum is lovely, not too big, not too small, just right!
The location is truly breathtaking, the museum is located on the side of the mountain near a forest.
It doesn't get much more "real" than this.
Here I am reinforcing the seams of one of my dresses.
Somehow I never get around to it at home.
The employees of the museum took very good care of us, Vikings.
The public was interested and polite.
And the food provided by the museum was very good!
(That is such a Dutch thing to say ;-) )
Well, I just might go again next year!
With our without husband and son.
