Skansen on Djurgården Island in Stockholm was the first open-air museum in Sweden, it opened in 1891. Artur Hazelius came up with the idea of collecting buildings from every part of Sweden and placing them at Skansen to give people living in the modern world an idea of life in pre-industrial times. Skansen has around 150 buildings set on 75 acres. I spent most of one day there and found it very interesting and it was also a good place for birding.
