Europe Vacation 2015: Skansen 1

Europe Vacation 2015: Skansen 1 After we visited the Vasa Museum, we walked over to Skansen.   The Skansen’s website shares that “Skansen was founded by Artur Hazelius in 1891. It is the world’s oldest open-air museum and is situated on the island of Djurgården within the city limits of Stockholm.”

We found it to be a mix of historical museum, living history museum, zoo, and children’s entertainment.  We were only able to spend a little time at Skansen, but I am sure that it could be a full day event, as we only saw some of the parts of the facility.

I chose orange as the theme color her to match the “tram” ticket, brochure, and my son’s sweatshirt. The left hand page serves as a holder for the Skansen brochures.  The black and white paper is the bag from the Skansen Museum store, and the orange ticket is for the children’s tram that we rode on to get a quicker tour of the facility so that we did not have to walk as much.  I used a rotary cutter to cut the slit in the black and white bag to slip the brochures in.

The right hand page has a picture of my very yummy lunch, my son trying out stilts, and a cool picture of an old log home juxtaposed with Stockholm’s modern TV tower.
