In almost every town or village in Sweden there is a local history society (hembygdsförening). These also usually also maintain one or more old cultural heritage buildings as hembygdsmuseum ~ homestead museum.
If in Sweden you see a road sign pointing to a Hembygdsmuseum, be prepared that this can denote just about anything from a tiny dilapitated cottage open to the public only on rare occasions; to a whole park full of carefully restored old buildings with exhibitions, guided tours, café and souvenir shop etc.
These are some buildings we found in the homestead park at Gräfsnäs – on our way to their main attraction, a castle ruin (which deserves a separate post).
An old barn…
… with some kind of threshing contraption at the back
