Really interesting and exciting museum. Lots of activities for children. Exciting shops. 80 SEK per person for access to a special activity house is too expensive when you are a whole family. Otherwise everything else is free and free parking.

Wow...great to wander around traditional Swedish houses and go inside. Cobbled streets delight us anyway and we are grateful as you get a sense of real Swedish history here. So delighted homes moved and preserved instead if being destroyed. It's all brought to life here....More

fun for a leisurely walk and experience life of the old linköping. as we went there on sunday, there is a small chapel that invites the public to join in prayer and praise.

It was about an half hour walk from the main town to the museum. It was free just to walk in. We went in March when most of the shops etc were closed but it was still worth visiting.
