Over 150 traditional buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries have been moved to Skansen from their original locations in other parts of the country and have been preserved as part of Sweden's cultural heritage.

Skansen's staff, dressed in folk costumes, demonstrate ancient techniques such as weaving and spinning. There is also a petting zoo, an aquarium and a variety of cafes and shops.
