Welcome to another land - Jamtli historyland

Address: Museiplan 1, 831 00 Östersund

During summer, the open air museum comes alive as actors and animals move into farms and other historical areas. Every day, visitors are invited to participate in a number of exiting activities. Once you enter Jamtli Historieland, anything can happen!

A few steps could take you between the 18th, 19th and 20th century, and the people you meet might come from eras others than ours. Role-playing is used to show how people lived and worked, how they cooked, looked after their animals or ran business.

Every day during the Historyland-season, a guided walk through history (in English) with role-playing actors departs from the Market Square at Jamtli at 14:00.

Here, the whole family can take part in the living history entertainment among real, live people from the 18th and 19th centuries. Join the actors at farms from different periods - take a ride on the hay carriage, take part in timber floating or be a maid or a farmhand for a day. You will soon find Jamtli Historyland full of fun and activity. Inside, you can take a slide down into the belly of the Storsjö monster to the underground exhibition halls. See the Storsjö monster exhibition, visit a stone age settlement, and join the Sami following their reindeer. If you are really brave, take a look into the wolf´s lair. The museum´s most famous attraction is the 1,000-year old Överhogdal tapestry. It is the oldest tapestry of its kind in Europe, it has been fully preserved and has, according to some interpretations, its roots in Old Norse mythology.

Historyland is open during summer: 22 of June to the 18 of August 2019
