Visit the idyllic Vallby Open Air Museum to see the animals, visit the craft shops or go on a guided tour.

Vallby Open Air Museum is one of Sweden’s largest with around 40 buildings from the county of Västmanland. The environments that the museum has recreated include a farmstead, a city quarter, copper works with a manor house and ironmaster’s homestead and a more recent mission hall and village school. The museum also has a live exhibition in the form of animals and plants that were typical of these environments.

The museum has plenty of activities going on during the summer months, with live performances at the open air theatre and living history exhibitions. There are also several different craft studios and gift shops and visitors can enjoy a meal or a snack at the restaurant Wärdshuset Gaggeska gården.
