    Visits in Tanum-both in the Museum and in the Park and in the open-air museum was the perfect introduction to our trip to Scandinavia.

Drawings, but rather a rock, can are not spectacular, but the land on which they are located is charming, and the multimedia Museum (free), with small (unfortunately for us, dear), kawianią and skansen and the truth, beautifully landscaped area. The area is ideal for a long walk, or a stopover. You can rent bikes and go for a long trip. In the Museum we will receive a map of other places in the area, in which there are pictographs.

  • Fantastic, calm area with well-maintained infrastructure. Free access museum with rich souvenir shop, easy accessible rock carvings even for the disabled, and large, free parking areas.
  • The rock carvings are always open, mind you they can be covered in snow. The museum is open summertimes. Free, with a most amazing exhibition and story about the bronze age people that lived here 2-3000 years ago.
  • Rock carvings and an Unesco world sight. Well taken care off with interesting history text posts. Free of admission as well.
  • Very interesting. To feel a touch of centuries history
  • Cool rock carvings and description of the peoples here at the time.
