Jamtli is the name of the regional open air museum of Jämtland and Härjedalen in Östersund, Sweden. It consists of an open-air museum with historical buildings, and an indoor museum with both permanent and temporary exhibitions. “Jamtli” literally means “hillside of Jämtland” in the local dialect. Since the 1980s, the museum has been working with living history in a project entitled Jamtli Historyland.

  • The best historical reenactment park/museum I've ever been to. Very talented staff. They are always in character. Authentic use of language/dialect, tools and techniques. Food made with authentic ingredients and recipes, using traditional methods. This place is a must-see and well worth a visit, especially for families and the historically inclined.
  • A must-visit place. My family spent two days there. Children were happy. Nice memories.
  • Nice collection of houses all brought to one place and great for kids to play but many things you can find during hikes in rural areas.
  • Jamtli hotel is very clean and hosts are very welcoming to everyone. There is a museum nearby if you are interested in history and a lot of guided activities for children as well. Nice mountains closeby if you want to go rollerskying or running
  • An exquisite museum explaining local tales and millennia of history of Jämtland. This is very good for children as it also have good exhibits and workshops. If you are interested about history and specifically about Caroliner, this place is also good. My favourite part is the Vikings. Everything is so well preserved and so educative, I spent a whole hour in just this section. It was so fun and interesting!
