Himmelsberga Ölands Museum

Himmelsberga is Öland´s most genuine village and now preserved as an open air museum with enclosed farms built along both sides of the narrow village road.

Description

The heart of the museum consists of several large farms with buildnings daing back the 18 th and 19 th century. All the original furniture is still to be found in the cottage and, outside, in the old stables, can be seen all the tools and equipment that were used on the farms.

The coffe shop sells freshly baked bread and hot pies and you can buy genuine Öland handicrafts in the village shop.

Himmelsberga has exhibitions of arts and crafts in its two galleries, and there is also art museum with a collection of older and modern Öland paintings.
