Night at the Museum – 18. October

Soon, it will once again be time to attend "Night at the museum"! Will you dare to come? Spooky witches have invaded our exhibitions, and a curse has been cast over the museum!

Visit Egersund Fayancemuseum between 18.00 and 21.00.

Mysterious things are happening, and among bats and spiders, we have realized that we need help. The staff at the museum increasingly often experience unpleasant things - cackling laughter can be heard from dark corners, and some swear to have seen the top of a witch's hat! We hope many brave visitors - small and big - will dare to enter the museum and help us lift the curse!

This is guaranteed to be fun, and a little scary, so come join us!

The event is free of charge!
