  • This museum was amazing with all of the handcrafted items. I was lucky enough too see their vault of old, mostly wooden handcrafted items. That included all types of tools you can think of. My visit was part of a course at Umeå University. Really nice museum, go see it!
  • This museum is an example how modern museum must function! It’s really amazing, good job! Design suits the topic of museum yet trendy and lovely! It’s interactive, especially for kids. There is guidance if you want in Swedish, but it needs a little bit more material in English. Museum is comfortable, fun as much as museum can be and informative! Like, even least focused person will have an idea how region was developed because of original and innovative decoration around.
