Good place to spend some quality time. It has various restaurants to serve the hungry ones. Children can enjoy the time as it as pet animals show casing and small park/green spread to play around. you can also shop hand made traditional items here.

Me and my friends used to go there when we were living in Vasteras. Pretty place that shows Swedish lives. They also organize events, for instance christmas market.

Me and my friend visited vallby friluftsmuseet in August (and ive been there myself for many Times before). Its a great place to visit especially during summer. Its simpel, yet educational and has a cosy atmosphere.

A good break from the city pulse for the entire family. The attractions themself, historical buildings, domestic animals and cafe/shops are common and are found in most Swedish cities and Vallby has nothing special to stand out in the crowd.

Typical museum in Sweden: buildings from the past, collected at different places in the region, and displayed on one site. There are also farm animals, and people inside the old buildings, explaining how it used to be, in the old times. Interesting for a family...More
