It is a small open air museum. We were there during the Samisk veckan (the sami week) in march and they had activities and real reindeer on the premises :) Thanks to a recent snowfall and perfect blue sky it was a great day to visit the museum. The museum building also houses some interesting collections and exhibitions about the region.

Beautiful museum, from local social history, interesting art, and videodisplays to ancient ski's. The unexpected benefit is the restaurant and the garderobe: It serves also as the starting point / dressing room for the local tourski / langlauf enthousiasts. We did a nice round on the ski's outside and afterwards we went through the museum, we stayed far longer then we expected beforehand because it had so much more. The restaurant is and suits here perfect. We had a marvelous afternoon.

The best part of Västerbottens Museum was the café that included traditional Swedish fika for a reasonable price. The museum has free entry. You get what you for though, as the art is generally mediocre. The section of different architecture styles throughout the decades had my interest. If you happen to be nearby, you can kill off some time by paying a quick visit. There are lockers for your belongings, free of charge.

This is an open-air museum, just slightly off the city center. Located in a big park, there are many old style Swedish houses (most have been taken from other parts of the country and rebuilt here) built to resemble a typical village, with church, small school, houses, saunas (for drying food), etc. The main building also has an exhibit and coffee shop. And it's all free!

Several different exhibitions mostly related to Umeå and the region. However, I only found two things interesting, the ski exhibition and a short film on the development of the town in 1940s-70s. Some of the rooms were closed for various reason. There's an open-air museum around it too, but nothing was open at this time of year (early spring). OK if you have time to kill in Umeå, it's only a 15 minute walk from the centre.
