This is a little gem on the stunning Swedish west coast. Some of the most remarkable and well preserved stone carvings in the world are easily accessible by beautifully made paths across lush forest. The museum is informative but easily digestible and tells you more...More

Our children enjoyed a dig as part of scheduled program. Although they don't speak Swedish, the presenter accommodated them. The kids each have a souvenir rock rubbing that they created. A wonderful experience.
