Visit The Skansen Open Air Museum

"Skansen" which means "the fortress" in Swedish is the world's first open-air museum, founded in 1891.

The aim of this unique museum was to invite visitors to stroll through five centuries of Swedish history.

Artur Hazelius - founder of the Skansen Museum - was a Swedish scholar and folklorist. He intended to give visitors an insight into how Swedes lived once upon a time and wanted to bring the traditional rural culture to life by exhibiting furnished houses and farmsteads which were transported from different parts of the country.

What is more, Skansen is not only the oldest open-air museum in the world but is also the Stockholm zoo with domestic and wild animals native to Scandinavia.

The thrilling "Skansen" experience is enhanced with daily activities which include folk dancing in the summer and an amusing public festival at Midsummer’s Eve.

Other Swedish traditions such as Walpurgis Night and Lucia are celebrated here as well.
