Julita Manor is an example of how a large estate would have looked and operated in the early 20th century. The last private owner, Arthur Bäckström who donated the estate to Nordiska museet in 1941, lived in the Manor House, which is open to visitors by guided tour. Several other buildings can be visited independently.
The estate includes 2.000 hectares of land and a park with a kitchen garden, orchard, hop garden and presentation garden. The orchard has approximately 290 fruit trees, and the living collections include hops, geraniums and peonies.
The exhibitions at Julita Manor tell of Sweden’s agricultural and horticultural history. They include pieces from Nordiska museet’s agricultural collection, one of the foremost in the world.
