An extraordinary museum with a most unique and wonderful tapestry at the centre of it. The exhibits are very imaginatively displayed and the staff are extremely helpful. The outdoor folk museum was not open when we were there but we could wander about the area. We had a very good light lunch in the cafe.

If you want to tavel back in time and also like history, then this Place is fantastic. Actors play the roles of people in such a fantastically realistic way, and sometimes it is hard not to just feel like you have stepped into Another Life and time! Plenty to see and do, and very near citycentre too.

Great in-or-outdoor museum. One of the best I've ever visited. Lot's to see, do and experience for ALL ages. Be transformed in the photostudio, eat great food in the forrest, visit all kind's of historical eras and in the summertime you can even talk to the people that lived during different times. The "Överhogdalsbonaderna" cannot be missed. Enjoy!

I visited Jamtli in June when the outside exhibits ("Historielandet" and the old shops) hadn't opened for the summer season. But the museum was still informative and you will learn a lot about life in the old days (10-12th century). Once you've paid for your ticket and approach the beginning of the exhibition, you will encounter a friendly looking Storsjö... More

We stayed on the island of Froson last week and visited Jamtli during our visit. I have rated this as very good simply because all the old buildings are not open during the winter opening times. One can still walk round them though and they are still interesting even though they are shut up. The museum inside is excellent and... More
