Spring is in the air!

The spring is here and it is a busy time for everyone. Visit our houses and farmsteads to learn more about old time spring cleaning and see our gardeners prepare the gardens for the summer. Learn how to pile wood, do laundry (without a washing machine), carve boats out of bark and create your own garden decorations. Hear the zoo keepers talk about the new cubs that are born during the spring. Below you can read about some of the activities that will take place during this event.

This weekend marks the first of the spring time events at Skansen. Visit the Skåne farmstead, the Iron monger's house or the farm labourer's cottage to see the inhabitants carry out their yearly spring cleaning.
