NOTES: This open-air museum, one of the world's first, was established by Artur Hazelius (1833-1901) and opened in 1891. Historical buildings (homes, farms, windmills, a school and a church) from nearly every part of Sweden have been acquired and re-erected on the site. This storehouse comes from the farm of Vastveit in Telemark in Norway and is one of the oldest buildings at Skansen, being erected in the 14th century and rebuilt in the 18th. It is the only building at Skansen that is not of Swedish origin and was acquired by Hazelius before Sweden ended its union with Norway in 1905.
