At Jamtli, history is fun. During summer time the whole family can take part in the living history entertainment among real, live people from the 18th and 19th centuries. Historyland is open during summer: 25 June –20 August 2017.

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, pet the animals at the farm, 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: 25th of June to the 21st of August 2016
