Our exhibition – An exciting journey in time

Join us upstairs at the Visitor Center. Here you will find the exhibition “A place they call the mountain”. The exhibition will take you back on a journey through the history of Gammelstad, from very far back to the present times. By objects, pictures and stories you will get to know personal portraits that will give you a wider understanding of the story. The exhibition also includes a room with slideshows where you can watch shorter films.

Our exhibition and slideshow room will be closed from January 11th 2021 for renovation. We will open a newly renovated exhibition during 2021.
