In the past, autumn holidays were called “potato holidays” in Norway. The children were given time off from school to help with the harvest of potatoes. Now the Norwegians spend their holiday exploring fun activities with the family, and at MiST (Museums in Sør-Trøndelag) there are fun activities for all ages during the autumn holiday.
