Photographer's Note

Skansen is the oldest open-air museum in the world, founded by Artur Hazelius in 1891. Skansen is also a zoological park. It is located on the island of Djurgården, a royal park near the centre of Stockholm. Skansen is open every day of the year, except Christmas Eve. The founder’s aims live on in the museum
today. He wanted to bring the traditional rural culture to life by exhibiting furnished houses and
farmsteads, cultivated plots and gardens and both domestic and wild animals. When Skansen started,
its focus was on farming and Sami culture.
