How did they decorate and how did they celebrate Christmas in the 20th century? Join our tour guide into three Christmas-decorated homes in The town and The residential area.

We will talk about how decorations and Christmas traditions have changed during the 20th century. What type of food has been popular? What did they eat as candy? We visit the pharmacist's apartment, the 1920s house and Queen Sonja's childhood home. The maximum number is 15 people per tour.
