Mr Monkey visits the Skansen

"They've got a feast of Swedish tradition, it seems"

Mr Monkey scampered through the main entrance and into the Skansen. He stopped to examine a large model of the Skansen, which showed the collection of traditional buildings that had been saved from all over Sweden and brought to Stockholm. The Skansen was the only open air museum in the world when it opened in 1891; expansions, starting in 1892, mean that it's now 10 times its original size. Looking at the map, Mr Monkey suspected that he wouldn't have enough time to visit every house in the 300,000m² park.

You can read all about the park at the Skansen website.
