Welcome to Sweden´s biggest open-air museum, situated in beautiful surroundings on the shores of lake Öljaren in the heart of Sörmland. In the middle age Julita was a monastery. It later became a state demesne and still later a manor house owned by members of the Swedish nobility. At Julita you will find a complete country estate from before the turn of the 20th century, preserved with all its exquisite interiors, parks, gardens, herb garden, its own diary, fire station, church, brickworks – in fact everything that was part of a large estate of that time. Julita is Sweden´s Museum of Agriculture and holds gene banks for apples, pears and rhubarb, and peony garden, native breeds of domestic animals, agriculture exhibits, a modern free-range barn and walking tracks in a cultural landscape.
