Very professionally done open air museum of local buildings and life in previous centuries. It is located about 10 minutes easy walk from the castle along the river bank. It is in a park with excellent facilities for children

An open air museum with old houses brought from different places ... shows old Sweden, literally. You can enter those houses and feel how people lived and earned in old Sweden. Of course, much different than today but still quite and peaceful. I liked it.
