Guided group activities

Visitor Centre and Open-air museum Hägnan offer guests the possibility to book different guided group activities. If you book a group activity you can freely suggest the date, time and language.

It is possible to book activities in the church town and at the open-air museum Hägnan. In the church town Gammelstad’s history is in focus and at Hägnan it is practical chores the farmers did back in the day. The combination between the two is nice and something we like to recommend to our guests.

The Visitor Center cooperates only with authorized Gammelstad guides. We also invest a lot of time continuously training the guides we work with. We focus on information but also on being able to present the information in an interesting way, making the story alive through their story. We can offer tours in Swedish and English as well as German and French by availability.

Through a collaboration with Luleå University of Technology, a professor of history is working on developing new knowledge in various areas, such as the existence of various minorities in the Church Town, the social architecture of the church cottages and more. The purpose of the collaboration is to develop the Visitor Centre’s guided tours in the Church Town.

Sound system

For larger groups we use the sound system Whispers. This is so all participants are able to hear the guide clearly. Each participant then gets an earpiece to hang over the ear and the guide talks in a microphone.

Comments from guests

We work constantly to keep high quality activities, guest feedback is important to us. Below are some comments from guests who booked activities with us.

The guide was both knowledgeable and very engaging to listen to. Really good. Getting headphones was also very good, so you don’t miss anything.

The guide was incredibly inspiring when she talked about old times and how everything started and continued, very knowledgeable when we asked questions! Great environment!

A really cozy experience. It was so atmospheric to carry the lantern with us.

The whole visit was a surprise, the buildings gorgeous, the walk well laid out and the welcome was warm. The guide was VERY talented, knowledgeable, and gave the impression that she liked her job very much.
