The world’s oldest open air museum may also be its greatest. The 75 acre replica of a 19th century Swedish town, complete with its own zoo, draws over a million visitors every year!

The 150 buildings on the site are actual historical buildings - farmsteads, a manor house, an open air concert hall, a windmill, a school, a pharmacy, the Seglora Church - relocated here from their original places. They focus on the craftsmen that made up the majority of a typical Swedish populace - tanners, shoemakers, silversmiths, and bakers - all enacted by staff in period outfits. The glassblower’s workshop is one of the most popular highlights.

And then there is the mini-zoo, full of Scandinavia’s common animals - moose, bear, bison, otter, reindeer, wolf, guereza, lynx, grey seal, wolf and wolverine.

Folk dances, concerts and other events fill up the summer evenings. Check the museum event calendar before your visit. Check out the world’s largest cigar and the funicular railway. The flowers are bright, the grass is green and everyone and everything is utterly photogenic.

You can shop at:

  • Skansenshop: Crafts, clothes, books, tools, souvenirs
  • Skansen barn at the Bollnas square
  • Potter's Workshop
  • Stockholm Glass workshop

There are lots of places to eat too! The historical baker house, cafes, hot-dog stands, and restaurants.

Skansen, Stockholm Reviews - Write a Review

  • It's a fun outdoor experience. Not like a typical "museum" and instead features lots of interactive elements. The animals are also interesting to see. Great for children, but can also be fun for adults. I was by myself, but I enjoyed seeing everything and walking through the giant complex.

  • One of my favourite places to take visitors of ours in Stockholm. Such a beautiful place, with some incredible buildings. Lots going on with people in period costumes showing you how things were done back in the day. It's a big day of walking, so wear comfy shoes, pack water and maybe some snacks. Only downside is it could do with more toilets around the park.

  • It's a beautifull and smart combination between a zoo, and an old town. It also has a farm, a glass making shop, a pottery, a bakery, a carpenter shop, a mechanical house, one very exciting play space were you can actually pet the goats, and some other interesting things. We loved it! One day is not enough to see all.

  • Great place for the family with kids. The big one and the small one will find many interesting things to do. Skånes has many attractions that allow you to learn something new. Good food options.

  • An outdoor museum that truly deserves 5 stars! You should spend the whole day here, a few hours is not enough! The information can be overwhelming to an extent. If you get bored of exploring houses, there is a section dedicated to a zoo. Wear comfy shoes for walking around.
