Easter is for many people the last vacation of winter. That means leisure time for skiing, good food, and a suspenseful Easter mystery. At the same time, Easter is the most central Holiday of the church year based on the liturgical calendar.
The Easter exhibit presents the background for this holiday, how it is celebrated in various religious communities in Norway, and the many traditions people join, such as eggs, whether they are for eating or ornaments.
The symbolism and meaning of the eggs in Easter traditions is central in the exhibit. A live tree is decorated with hand painted eggs.
The exhibit is open in the Exhibit Hall April 1 – 10.
