“A fun collection of Swedish buildings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

This open air museum behind the Cathedral is a great way to see an architectural history of southern Sweden without walking too much. From the wooden church to the Prof.'s house, it's a great way to see the evolution of Sweden through architectural and design. Well worth the trip. Go when it opens at 10 and then when you're done you can walk over to the Cathedral at noon for the chiming of the astronomical clock.

“Unusual museum full of ancient to old houses and functional buildings transplanted to an open-air site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

Unusual and comprehensive. Too much to manage at one visit though the ticket is valid all day, but I was overloaded after a couple of hours or so and had skimmed plenty of the exhibits. Quite expensive entry if you can't do it in one visit.

“Unassuming to pleasantly surprising”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

A great experience. The museums collection and exhibits are expertly curated and provide not-only a historical view of Sweden, but also of other cultures.

“Complete history of Lund's history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

Before entering the building, we thought this can't be much, since the building wasn't as big as expected. However, this is a misunderstanding, since the museum is both inside and outside in open air. Inside you get a clear vision of what happened in Lund over the centuries. It has special rooms/exhibitions on China and the wars. Once you go outside, you discover the buildings that were in Lund throughout its history. You can also have a look around inside those houses and that worth the visit. The entrance prices are not that expensive and you get to see a lot for your money. The opening hours are a bit difficult since the museum closes around 4pm.. We had a lot of fun in this museum and it learned us some of Lund's history and culture.

“Love Love Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

This is a must see if you're visiting Lund. These are all old houses that have been refurbished back to their authentic decor and placed in a little village. You can walk through the village and into each little house, where there will be information about the house. In the wooden boxes outside, there are also old fashioned games to play. They have programs too but she did more of a wander through at our own pace. Been a couple of times, it's really nice.
