    Want to discover the habitat rural and city of the middle ages to today in Sweden? You are in the right place with this wonderful idea of a teacher and his students at the end of the 19th century. But give yourself time! In 2 hours, thanks to the panels in English (very well done) I could visit that 80% of the outer part accessible by the bridge under the street and which has let them displaced from other parts of Sweden. Coffee and toilet inside. The brewery of the entry is independent of the Museum and open even after the closure of 17: 00.

    The cultures in Lund is certainly one of the most important stations in the city. The old Swedish houses invite to the stay an and are equipped with attention to detail. Anywhere information boards can be found in different languages. You can make but also one of the 45 minute guided tour in Swedish or English. These are absolutely recommended.

    Culture consists of a variety of activities. A common historical museum, and a museum with changing exhibitions and an outdoor museum where you carried with historic houses, churches, and more from different parts of Sweden. There is also a restaurant and a café. It's a nice place to learn about history or just strolling around, but many people come here on special occasions, such as at Christmas, when it held a cozy Christmas market in the old fashioned environment or on June 6 when it organizes national day celebration.
