Silvermuseet Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Einar Wallquist (1896-1985), the "Lapp doctor ", who arrived in Lapland in 1922, created the museum in 1965 in a former Sami school (1854). A crafts shop is now housed in the former classroom. In the basement, visitors can see the doctor's consulting room and a superb collection of Sami (Lapp) crafts including objects for daily and ritual use, and fine silver pieces. The showpiece is a magic drum. On the first floor is an exhibition of Swedish farming tools, which are very plain in comparison with the richly decorated Sami tools.
