Västernorrland’s many museums

Learn about the great land uplift and the national park

Little time left for cultural activities and experiences? Then you’ve come to the right place. Dream away among gleaming mahogany leisure boats or marvel at 750 clocks in a barn. There is much to see in the High Coast’s museums and art galleries.

Svartvik’s industrial monuments
Svartviksvägen 22, Kvissleby
Visitor destination with many well-preserved buildings and environments from the sawmill era. Try the bowling alley and let the children play in the historically themed play park.

Norra Bergets friluftsmuseum
Norra stadsberget, Sundsvall
Open air museum in the spirit of Skansen with old buildings, objects and cultural environments. Here you take a fun trip through Medelpad’s history in beautiful surroundings and at the crafts and maritime museum here you will find the famous Skvadern. Very child friendly!

Häggvik, Nordingrå
Open Air Museum and constantly growing and teeming projects created by the artist Anders Åberg. Older houses, “mini museums” and collections. A fascinating experience in the middle of the World Heritage Site.

Fishing museum Vålen
High Coast’s smallest museum? A stone’s throw from the water in the fishing village, Vålen is open during the summer months. Boat, fishing equipment and a lot of information in a small area.

Ådalen’s industrial museum
The floating museum at Sandslån is facing a transformation. Together with the newly started association Ådalens Industrimuseum, Kramfors municipality will renew the exhibitions in the historic Imperial Palace. This summer is perhaps the last chance to visit the old exhibitions about the floating and sorting era at Sandslån 1872-1982! The association’s goal is for Ådalen’s Industrial Museum to become a hub and a meeting place for those who want to discover Ådalen’s industrial landscape. The museum is aiming for a new premiere with updated exhibitions in the summer of 2022.
The museum is open June-August every day 10am-5pm. www.adalensindustrimuseum.se

How many bells can fit in a converted barn? Answer: At least 750 table, wall and floor clocks from four centuries. This is a strange museum experience. Open on weekends in July.

Nowadays there are two mini museums that tell part of the history of the village. We rank it among the country’s smallest museums. Charm factor.
