Autumn break at Skansen

The autumn gloom descends over Skansen, and uneasy whispers spread through the Old Town Quarter. What terrible disease has gripped the town, and how can the townsfolk protect themselves? Should they go to the pharmacists, with their pills and ointments, or is it better to listen to the Wise Ones and make protective magical amulets? Strange beings move around the houses and farmsteads. Who is sighing and moaning in the churchyard? Do you dare to visit the Wise Ones at Bollnäs House and the stern sexton at Seglora Church?

There will be all manner of exciting activities at Skansen during the autumn holidays. Listen to spooky tales in the cottages, take part in craft activities and meet the inhabitants of the disease-stricken town. Discover a Skansen where history comes to life!

From scary to cosy - visit the nice cafées for a fika

The restaurants and cafés will be serving fiendishly tasty food. You can also grill sausages at Bollnäs Square. Bring your own, or buy them for SEK 15 each.

The craft activities cost SEK 30 per person.

A dreaded disease and strange fish

In the Baltic Sea Science Center we learn about the outbreaks of cholera in the 19th century. The extensive trading of goods made it possible for diseases to spread from continent to continent. Today our challenges are different but still transporting goods over the seas bring unwanted species into our northern waters.
