Jamtli offers an exciting journey through the history of Jamtland and Harjedalen. Here you will discover stimulating milieux and enjoy being part of history. The museum has permanent exhibitions about the region's past alongside temporary exhibitions of arts and handicrafts. Some exhibitions take up current matters of public interest and explore them from an historical perspective. Every summer, the open air museum turns into Jamtli Historieland (living history theme park). The historical buildings come alive with history and role plays, where visitors are drawn into eventful and playful stories from 1785 until 1975. Jamtli Historieland enables you, as a visitor, to associate with the actors who bring to life and portray people from the past. Jamtli gives access to our regional heritage and provides a place where we can discuss our values and life-styles, then and now. Jamtli gives you the opportunity to make the most of your visit. Perhaps you would like to bring your own picnic basket and spend your time relaxing in the stunning parks. Or you might want to meet the actors, such as Astrid and Sture who farm the Per Albin-torpet (The Smallholding) from 1942? Or you may be fascinated by the 1,000-year-old tapestries, "The Overhogdal Tapestries". You choose, so bring your whole family, your friends, your company employees or just come on your own to an enjoyable, entertaining and magical museum where you can see, touch and act!

Well-constructed exhibitions (except for poor lighting), inspiring displays, and some impressive collections and objects - and this was just the indoor museum! One issue is that there's almost no English texts, and sometimes not even modern Swedish. Oh, and don't freak out when you enter...More

This is truly a wonderful museum. The outdoor collection of buildings from many eras is astounding. The indoor exhibits are so child friendly and lifelike. You must visit this museum and you must have a few hours to spare.

There are numerous little "outdoor museums" - or villages, it turns out, across Sweden. Jamtli was on our list however, as one of the bigger ones, near my wife's ancestral lands, and with personnel reenacting in the outdoor area. Plus, we visit these outdoor living...More

Interesting and good local museum. A good stop with a classic museum and an outdoor museum. The collections gives a good idea of the prehistoric and historical phases of the area.
