This was the second restored buildings museum on our trip it is quite big and well spread out so you feel as though you are walking from place to place. The buildings are only manned and open to visitors in high season because of this it is free out of season. The museum and the outside exhibits are well worth... More

This is a very friendly museum with more than you can see in a day. It has wonderful interactive displays for children. Superb displays of historic rural life and crafts. High quality craft goods in the shop and good cafés. All round an extremely high standard of museum experience.

Wonderful display of local history from early times to present. This museum has free entry for nine months of the year and only charges an entry fee during certain special displays or celebrations. We didn't see any of the special displays but were there for five hours looking at the permanent displays (inside) and the outside buildings. We were engaged... More

A walk through history. Fantastic old houses, and actors showing how people lived in Sweden through the last few centuries. Lots for the kids to do. Nice restaurant. Quite expensive to enter, but you can come back the next day for free.

So much to do that the children were amused for hours. The normal entrance ticket is valid for 2 consecutive days. We bought the family ten day pass (even though we were only there for 4 days) as it wasn't much more expensive. The outdoor museum has buildings from different periods in history with actors involving you in different scenarios:... More

We had a great day at Jamtli. It completely exceeded all our expectations. All the people that was living in all the authentic historical buildings (on a voluntary) made such an impression. They played their roles very well and it gave us great pleasure to meet them and listen to their stories from different epochs. You will feel like you... More

We arrived in time for an English speaking tour which was educational, fun and interesting. The actors were so good I forget they weren't really living there. Met some wonderful local people attending the same tour. Wasn't easy to find but it was well worth the trip.

Wonderful place to learn a lot more about Sweden during the last 230 years. With actors who play being in that timeperiod and telling you lots of interesting things. Tours are not only in Swedish, also in English. It's a large park with alot to do and experience for children. It's open from 11.00 a.m. till 5.00 p.m. We needed... More

Lovely place to spend and afternoon in december for christmas shopping lokal food and handcraft. Higly recomended also in summer and greate for kids (and adults!) who can see/hear the history come alive. Both the inside museum and outdoor is verry well arranged. A must if you are visiting Östersund and you should plan a full day for this place!
