Medieval Time Travels in Vasa

Once a year in September, Kalmar County Museum visit Vaasa and Fria Kristliga Folkhögskolan. Together we arrange Time Travels for the students. The Time Travels have been held to the Iron Age, the Middle Ages and the 19th Century. ”Taking part in a historical Time Travel has proven to be an excellent way to experience a different reality. The use of historical clothing and equipment also helps to increase the understanding of a different time and existence”, says Thomas Nordström, principal of FKF.

In November each year Fria Kristliga Folkhögskolan arranges “Finland-Swedish Medieval Time Travels” for pupils in several primary school classes. The Finland-Swedish Medieval Days have become well known and appreciated.  

“I think the pupils who take part in a Time Travel learns history better”, Hanna Sandberg, one of the Folk High School students, says. “But it is important that they have studied the time period beforehand.”
