is a museum that will tell you about the settlers'
strenuous life in a bare country with no roads -
about need, hunger and sorrow, but also about
happiness and contentment. You will be able to see
old buildings from the 17th 18th and 19th
centuries and great number of items (altogether
around 18 000!) from the peasants' culture as well
as from the Sami culture. The museum happens to be
situated on the site of a Sami cot at an ancient
cold spring. There are also some objects from the
Orient among the collections.
We hope that you’re
walking- tour through the history will be an
interesting and exciting experience. The museum is
located 15km from Vännäs and 45 km from Umeå in Västerbotten
