Arquebus and school

What can Arquebus contribute above school?

Arquebus can primarily concretize the story in a completely different way from other available sources.
Website to Arquebus will also be an asset for students. Students can examine the exhibition, read the relevant texts in advance of a visit, so you want a higher yield of the visit. Site and archive will also be a source of information about the local war history, especially for students who are working on projects.

Pr. Today, we have a limitation when it comes to accepting schools out of season May to August.

Arquebus exhibition in Tysvær

The exhibition in the Predecessor stands today as a significant defense-related exhibition, both due to its rich historical content and because of their size. The museum has managed to bring out the various aspects of the war's history in a mixture of large environment setup - where different situations from daily life and local war events are recreated and in terms of a number of minor layout - dealing with the details of the interwar period in the form of text, artwork and historical artifacts. The historic artifacts are used to form a complementary supplement to the story and illustrations.
