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.

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
