Welcome to Murberget!
At Murberget, Västernorrland County Museum, old is contrasted with new. History is mixed with modern and contemporary art, handicrafts, film and music.
The museum is open Tuesday-Sunday 11 am to 4 pm.
The buildings of the open-air museum are open to the public from the middle of June to the middle of August. You are of course welcome to wander around the open-air museum and look at the buildings from the outside even during the winter.
We have both permanent exhibitions on the history of the county
and temporary ones that cover current topics. The selection of
activities is extensive for both children and adults; there's
always something happening at Murberget.
Outside the entrance to the modern museum buildings lies the
open-air museum. Here you will find buildings and environments that
illustrate life in central Norrland in the 19th and
early 20th centuries. During the summer many visitors
come here to celebrate midsummer, have a singsong and meet guides
wearing clothes typical of the time.
The museum has large collections of objects and photographs. In the storehouse there are for example: a large collection of peasant furniture, one of the country's largest collections of old rifles, painted sculptures from the Middle Ages, ancient relics, textiles, musical instruments and Sami handicrafts. Please get in touch with us if you would like to know more about our collections.
