Overview

Skansen claims to be the first open-air museum in the world. Located in Djurgården, this museum also has a zoological park that displays Scandinavian fauna. Arthur Hazelius laid the foundation of this museum-park in 1891 to showcase the historical transition of the Swedish people. Historic buildings that date back to the 18th century surround the park, and the hosts dressed in traditional and period costumes greet the visitors. The park is open all through the year, and tourists throng to the place to experience the 18th century lifestyle. Prices and hours depend on the time of year, so be sure to check the website for further details.
