The Age of Sail

Level: Grades 1. - 2.
Time: 45 minutes

Pupils visit our seafaring exhibition. They get to hear the story of the rookie sailor Tønnes, who travelled at sea on a sailing ship over a hundred years ago. We talk about sailing ships, the places Tønnes went, what he brought with him, and who worked aboard the ship.

Please note: We have prepared a booklet for teachers called Egersund og Sjøfarten. This material can be used in preparation for your visit. It is currently only available in Norwegian.
