It's a nice free attraction to visit while you are exploring south of Stockholm. There is a church and a small shop that sells all sorts of great gifts. Note that it's only open September till April with pre booking.

At july it is guided, then it is more worth a visit, wintertime it is just a ock with some signs. History, yes, but overrated.
