Vitlycke museum gives you a real insight into the Bronze Age world and is a great experience for the whole family. You’ll be fascinated by the landscape and the well-preserved rock carvings, which are on the Unesco World Heritage List.
Fantastic rock carvings
Definitely one of the highlights at Vitlycke museum - the famous rock carvings. Enjoy them at your own pace or go with one of the guides, who can fill you in on all the details. A really cool idea is to join a guided tour at night and see the rock carvings with a torch, or even moonlight if you’re lucky!
People from the past
Jump on a voyage back to the Bronze Age. You’ll meet Akaz, Nenna, Alawin, Glicc and Gläär - people that the museum has re-created from archaeological findings in tombs and settlements. You get a real insight into what life was like in Tanum 3,000 years ago when you hear and see the story of their lives and adventures.
Life in the Bronze Age
Visit the Bronze Age farm and get really close to living in the Bronze Age. Among other things it has two reconstructed longhouses and workshops. During the summer season the museum exhibits crafts, such as plant dyeing and bronze casting. Try out shooting with a bow and arrows, carding wool and a lot of other things.
Shop and restaurant
If you fancy a coffee drop in at Café Bronze, where you can sit in a beautiful, relaxing location and look out over the World Heritage Site. Don’t miss the exciting, well-stocked Rock Art Shop at the museum - great for gifts!
