How did these houses get to the Skanzen? Why were these specific ones chosen? Who used to live in them? How did they function? What are the differences between the regional units?

 

During a walk through the museum’s regional units, you can gain knowledge of the dwelling houses, outbuildings, churches and belfries. In addition to the questions above we also talk about the lifestyle and religion of the particular region’s inhabitants. The region’s most common everyday objects will be presented. We will get to know equipment that is now only familiar from books. By the end of the tour participants wil have an overall picture of the region. The knowledge gained here will help you to discover the other regional units individually.

How did the division of labour function in a family look like 100 years ago? What were the duties of the parents and the children?

 

At one of the museum’s croft, in an authentic environment, children can experience a busy weekday of a poor peasant family. During the learning activity the class will inhabit one of the Museum’s croft. By joining the season appropriate work they can learn how hard it was for a family to make a living; as well as experiencing how much responsibility was put on a child through workflow stages. Although family roles have changed a lot in the past hundred years, family division of labour is still as important as it used to be.

While we observe one of the Museum’s croft, we get to know the lifestyle of the 1900’s children. We search the similarities and the differences between the children’s world of the past and present.
