This Museum really shows off Swedish agriculture, and what life was like 150 years ago. We stayed overnight in the guest wing. The formal garden in front of the Manor was exquisite. The food at the restaurant is VERY good.

A19th century manor house with all of its original lands and outbuildings, including rustic cottages inspired by Skansen, preserved by the Nordiska museum in Stockholm. It's not easy to get to, about a 45minute drive southwest from Eskilstuna. Well worth a day..
