This is an amazing collection of old buildings and you may spend lots of time strolling around in the beautiful park. Descriptions could be a bit more detailed though. There is a small playground area which children will appreciate.

We were a small group of Americans that visited the museum as part of our Scandinavian Viking tour. Our local guide, Gunnar, was great. We were especially interested in the process of making tar, a Viking trade item used to preserve Viking ships, stave churches...More

A fascinating place to visit to understand some Gotlands history. Some very well preserved/restored buildings and a selection of windmills in a beautiful location.

This is an excellent place to better understand Gotland and Sweden's amazing history. The farms from different centuries have been very well presented. I was amazed at the self-reliance and subsistence of people in these isolated places.

In this very interresting museum you can follow how people lived in Gotland in old times. There are several very interresting houses to see.
