Open-air Museum Hägnan  

The Open-air Museum Hägnan, located a stone’s throw from the church town, is well worth a visit when you are in Gammelstad. At Hägnan, you will get to see what life was like in a coastal village in this region between the 18th and 20th centuries. The museum contains buildings from all over Swedish Lapland, offering a rich, varied selection of activi­ ties and experiences for all ages. After enjoying a Swedish fika, a light snack and a beverage, at the Kafé Fägnan, a stroll through the outdoor museum will do you good. Or you could bring your own picnic basket and sit down on the grass. There is a lot to see and you mustn’t miss the store, where you will get to go back in time. The pigs, the goats, the rabbits and the hens are also popular amongst our younger visitors.
