Veien Cultural Heritage Park is located approximately one hour north-west of Oslo by car. The area consists of over 100 grave mounds from the Early Iron Age, a reconstructed longhouse and a museum. The museum is open most of the year. During the summer the longhouse and the museum are open every day except Monday. 

The Longhouse

In the field just south of the burial ground, archaeologists have uncovered the remains of four longhouses. They are all dated to the Early Iron Age. The longest of these houses has been reconstructed where the original was uncovered.

Guiding in the longhouse is available in Norwegian and English, but we also have an audioguide in Norwegian, English and German. At Veien we welcome children and playful adults and the guides are more than happy to show you various Iron Age acitivities such as grinding corn to flour or shooting with bows and arrows.

The Museum

The museum building houses both permanent and temporary exhibitions. The permanent exhibition is an archaeological exhibition, whereas the themes of the temporary exhibitions vary – read our programme to find out what’s on!

In the museum there is also a café and a shop where you can buy locally produced handicraft, souvenirs from the area or other gifts.
