A great museum in Umeå with many interesting exhibitions! And it's also free. There is also a cafe where they serve many delicious looking warm drinks, pastries, ice creams and other food. Located just a short walk from the very center of the city.

Several interesting exhibitions from Umeå, Västerbotten, nice photos and an interesting area regarding building preservation for our Swedish houses. Excellent restaurant for couples as well as for families travelling with children of any age. The outdoor areas are also quite interesting for the whole family
