Overview

Jamtli offers an exciting journey through the history of Jamtland and Harjedalen. Here you will discover stimulating milieux and enjoy being part of history. The museum has permanent exhibitions about the region's past alongside temporary exhibitions of arts and handicrafts. Some exhibitions take up current matters of public interest and explore them from an historical perspective. Every summer, the open air museum turns into Jamtli Historieland (living history theme park). The historical buildings come alive with history and role plays, where visitors are drawn into eventful and playful stories from 1785 until 1975. Jamtli Historieland enables you, as a visitor, to associate with the actors who bring to life and portray people from the past. Jamtli gives access to our regional heritage and provides a place where we can discuss our values and life-styles, then and now. Jamtli gives you the opportunity to make the most of your visit. Perhaps you would like to bring your own picnic basket and spend your time relaxing in the stunning parks. Or you might want to meet the actors, such as Astrid and Sture who farm the Per Albin-torpet (The Smallholding) from 1942? Or you may be fascinated by the 1,000-year-old tapestries, "The Overhogdal Tapestries". You choose, so bring your whole family, your friends, your company employees or just come on your own to an enjoyable, entertaining and magical museum where you can see, touch and act!

It cost 330SEK per person for a two day pass which is exorbitant. There is not a one day ticket which is ridiculous for those people travelling daily to new places. We arrived at 3 o'clock and there was no reduced price for a short...More

Situated in a beautiful park, Jamtli is a dip in earlier Swedish life. You see many original old buildings (farm, church, bakery, etc) and people in traditional costumes perform the different crafts.

Only the indoor museum was operational during my visit, but I spent far more time there than expected. Great historical perspective is provided. Although displays are in Swedish, an English language audio guide offers wonderful and educational commentary.

Came for the Overhogdal Weaves and was not disappointed. Enchanting and fascinating piece of history. Just a pity there is no translation in English of the Ruth Horneij book available to take home. The booklet by Ulla Oscarsson is a good substitute. But the museum...More
