Welcome to Pengsjö settler's museum

  Sven-Eric Nyman

This is a museum that will tell you about the settlers' strenuous life in a bare country with no roads - about need, hunger and sorrow, but also about happiness and contentment. You will be able to see old buildings from the 17th 18th and 19th centuries and great number of items (altogether around 18 000!) from the peasants' culture as well as from the Sami culture. The museum happens to be situated on the site of a Sami cot at an ancient cold spring. There are also some objects from the Orient among the collections.

We hope that you’re walking- tour through the history will be an interesting and exciting experience. The museum is located 15km from Vännäs and 45 km from Umeå in Västerbotten Sweden.


Welcome!
