Children & families
In Gamla Linköping Open-Air Museum there is lots to do for children and their families all year long. Explore the neighbourhood, take a coffee break, visit a museum or Fenomenmagasinet, buy old-fashioned candies in the general store...
During Summertime, from the end of June to the middle of August, many extra activities are arranged that are fun for children. You can go to the theatre, ride in a horse-drawn wagon, play storekeeper in Barnens bod, make things in our carpenter’s shop, help the rope-maker make rope, wash and bake in Bryggaregården, and much more.
Get a free activity map at our visitor centre Infomagasinet at Tinnbindaregatan 8.
At Valla Farm there is a tractor and train museum, pony riding, horses, goats, rabbits and other animals to visit. There is also a miniature golf course and a playground, Lill-Valla, where you can jump, run and climb. You can walk or drive to Valla Farm, or take a ride on the choo-choo train (summer). In Valla Woods there is an experiential trail with interesting stations where you can learn more about animals and nature.
School break activities
We also have theatre, puzzle days and other activities on certain weekends and other school breaks during the year. The discovery workshop Fenomenmagasinet is just as fun for the children as for mom and dad, grandpa and grandma, and is open every weekend and during school breaks.
