Founded in 1891 by Artur Hazelius, Swedish scholar and folklorist, Skansen was the first open air museum in Sweden, intended to display pre-industrial life around Sweden through historic structures. Many of the traditional buildings and homes at Skansen were moved from other parts of the country, with a few detailed replicas mixed in.
