The fitness equipment allows for a wide variety of flexibility, mobility, range-of-motion, cardio, and strengthening moves to provide a well rounded workout that is accessible to all adult ages, skill levels and body types. Each machine is equipped with easy to follow instructions that explain safe operation.  These gyms are popular worldwide to help people increase their activity.  Use them as often as you can and let us know how it is working to keep you active.  Email: [email protected]

The Laft Hus celebrates 35 years in Red Deer

Published on

The Laft Hus is a replica of an 18th-century farmhouse in the Numedal district in Norway. It was created through the efforts of volunteers, and it officially opened to the public in 1987.

The museum contains many old artifacts and examples of Norwegian arts and crafts and a small butikk of Norwegian items and the house itself is of note due to its traditional sod roof.

The museum and gift shop are open to visitors every day (except Mondays) from June 1 through to August 31, 9:00 am to 3 pm. For the remainder of the year, the Norwegian Laft Hus is open each Wednesday when a group of ladies meet to work on Norwegian arts and crafts.

This year, the Laft Hus celebrates its 35th year in Red Deer. The annual festival will take place on June 18, 2022 and will have many activities, entertainment, Norwegian food and vendors for the visitors to enjoy. Help us celebrate!
