Live the Bronze Age world

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!

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.

Jump on a voyage back to the Bronze Age inside the museum as well. 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.

Delicious Bronze Age food for today!

In the museum's cozy Café Bronze, you can look out over the world heritage and enjoy well-cooked food and ”fika” - prepared with local ingredients. The café serves wraps, stews, soups, salads, sandwiches, pastries, main courses and pancakes; game grilled, vegetarian and vegan. The menu is a crossover between the Bronze Age and the present where vegetables come from the gardens and greenhouses in Branneby. Food waste is transformed into new soil and sometimes Saturdays equals outdoor concerts.
