Overview
More
Jamtli offers an exciting journey through the history of Jamtland and Harjedalen. Here you will discover stimulating milieux and enjoy being part of history. The museum has permanent exhibitions about the region's past alongside temporary exhibitions of arts and handicrafts. Some exhibitions take up current matters of public interest and explore them from an historical perspective. Every summer, the open air museum turns into Jamtli Historieland (living history theme park). The historical buildings come alive with history and role plays, where visitors are drawn into eventful and playful stories from 1785 until 1975. Jamtli Historieland enables you, as a visitor, to associate with the actors who bring to life and portray people from the past. Jamtli gives access to our regional heritage and provides a place where we can discuss our values and life-styles, then and now. Jamtli gives you the opportunity to make the most of your visit. Perhaps you would like to bring your own picnic basket and spend your time relaxing in the stunning parks. Or you might want to meet the actors, such as Astrid and Sture who farm the Per Albin-torpet (The Smallholding) from 1942? Or you may be fascinated by the 1,000-year-old tapestries, "The Overhogdal Tapestries". You choose, so bring your whole family, your friends, your company employees or just come on your own to an enjoyable, entertaining and magical museum where you can see, touch and act!

There are numerous little "outdoor museums" - or villages, it turns out, across Sweden. Jamtli was on our list however, as one of the bigger ones, near my wife's ancestral lands, and with personnel reenacting in the outdoor area. Plus, we visit these outdoor living...More

Interesting and good local museum. A good stop with a classic museum and an outdoor museum. The collections gives a good idea of the prehistoric and historical phases of the area.

Although some of the buildings were shut it was possible to wander around and in many of the old buildings. Some renovation and building works were going on but did not directly impact the exhibits. Worth a wander up as it's not far from the...More

I visited in winter so the buildings in the grounds were closed. The museum is beautifully made, it really feels as if you were outside in the woods. I had a English audio guide which is a must if you do not speak Swedish. Unfortunately,...More

Hi! Thank you for your feedback and great review. We will look into adding laser points to the Viking exhibition.

I think this is best as a summer attraction when all the external areas are open. However, we really enjoyed the internal museum which has been superbly put together. This is worth a visit in its own right. The audio guide with English translation is...More

A walk through history. Fantastic old houses, and actors showing how people lived in Sweden through the last few centuries. Lots for the kids to do. Nice restaurant. Quite expensive to enter, but you can come back the next day for free.
