We invite you to a Christmas fair for all the senses!

In Västra Vram’s Vicarage, The Blekinge Farmhouse, The Bosmåla Croft, The Thomander House and The Worker’s Home you meet historically dressed guides, who can tell you how Christmas celebrated in that perticular house.

The Christmas market is expanding both indoors and outdoors. In the market stalls you can find cheese, sausage, herring and other Christmas food. You can also buy unique Christmas presents, such as jewelry, knitwear, art and ceramics.

You can see how to make marzipan figures and decorate gingerbread cakes, but also do some simple Christmas crafting of your own. Listen to music, warm yourself up with glögg, watch Lucia and don’t forget to visit Santa Claus in The Onsjö cottage.

Our exhibitions and historic houses are also open!
