Are you looking for a Midsummer celebration that invites you to dance and play in a pleasant, old-fashioned environment? If so, then you should come and celebrate with us at the open-air museum Hägnan - among beautiful old buildings, goats, cows, and wonderful summer meadows!

We offer a solemn and pleasant atmosphere with everything that belongs to this popular summer holiday, in an environment that really breathes tradition, pleasantries and true Swedish summer. During the day we dress and raise the midsummer pole, dance, play traditional games and listen to live music. We also have many other nice activities suitable for both young and old.

So, may we have this dance? Welcome to a summer celebration for the entire family at the open-air museum Hägnan!
