Museum of Forestry
The Museum of Forestry in Lycksele has a number of very interesting collections and exhibitions. The exhibitions belong to the Huggar (Manual Era) and Maskinpoken (Machine Era). The recently acquired collection "Sami Skatter" is a collaboration between Sparbanksstiftelsen Norrland, Lycksele Sameförening, Skogsmuseet AB and Lycksele Municipality. Parts of this exhibition will be shown this summer.Sami SkatterAn astonishing collection has been brought home to Lycksele. It's with great pleasure that Lycksele Municipality has established the Birger Nordin collection of approximately 2,500 unique Sami objects which made their way back to Lycksele. Several of the objects originated in Ume lappmark and Lycksele which makes it extra special to have them here. For centuries, Lycksele has been a center of Ume lappmark, now has possession of the Sami objects.Manual & Machine Era In the museum exhibitions of Manual and the Machine Era, we meet many of the forest rural people; lumberjacks, the cook, the young shepard, the small holding wife, the forest officer, the state forest ranger, the log floater, the scaler, the machine operator, the repairman and the constructor. Forestry through the ages, in which various technical achievements, gear, housing, food and clothing, together give a picture of the historical development. The exhibition is also about the forest, what we have used the timber for in the past and what do we do to it today.

Gammplatsen (the Old Place)
As early as the Stone Age people chose to settle here. The information that has been gathered through archeological digging shows that it was exactly here on the Islet that the Sámi and the settlers made contacts with the authorities, represented by the clergy and the schoolmaster. In 1606, King Carolus IX's emissary and the Sámi met in order to decide the location of a church and market site. They agreed that the Islet was a good place, because neither the Sámi from Ångermanland nor the Piteå areas would then get too long way to church. The work started - building material was procured, and before Christmas in 1607 the first church was finished. In connection with the two annual markets legal matters were handled, and the King's bailiffs levied taxes. The church site - with a Lapp Town for the cots of the Sámi, the Finn Town for the settlers and the Burgher Town for the tradesmen - grew, but the space was too limited, so when the new church was built on the heath in 1799, everything gradually moved to the site of present Lycksele.The open-air museum, run by Lycksele Hembygdsgille (the Lycksele Folklore Society), illustrates the development within several different areas - the settlers, the church, school, farming and forestry, hunting, telecommunications, trade, tailoring and shoemaking. There is a cafeteria at Ruselegården (the Rusele manor-house) and time for reflection in the Margareta Church. The Sami Association is responsible for the display of Sami culture. The all-year open Forestry Museum is also in the area. www.gammplatsen.com
With a diverse range of activities, most can find something to do. We hope you find something of interest. One of the interesting sights is Samevistet at Gammplatsen. The place where Samevistet now stands is a historical place, it was here on Gammplatsen where Lycksele official church and marketplace became in 1607. Therefore in 2007, Lycksele celebrated it's 400 year anniversary. Over the past few years, it has become a meeting place for Sami residents in the region and for tourists to see a very genuine settlement. Here, enthusiasts from the local Sami Association built and renovated it according to old traditions. This is not a time for nail, plastic or sheet metal.
The Underground Church at Kristineberg
HistoryIn the mid-1930s Boliden Mining Ltd started ore mining at Kristineberg. A totally new community grew up next to the deposit. Kristineberg could be compared with a new Klondyke. In 1943, when the dressing plant was finished, the company had about 500 employees, and the total population in the formerly rather small village was now close to 1 000 persons.The RevelationIn 1946 something happened which really put Kristineberg on the map and made a great stir way outside Kristineberg and way outside county and country borders. When the smoke had settled after a blast about 100 metres down in the mine, a two-metre tall figure was discovered on the mine wall - a Christ figure had revealed itself. People flocked in order to look at Christ in glittering quartzite and with an ankle-length mantle. The shaft was filled up later on - but the discovery, which has inspired to a lot of works of art and prophesies, has never ceased to fascinate all over the world.
Tuggengården (The Tuggen Manor House)
Welcome to have a look at Olle Blomberg's Home and Studio Exhibition - the 30s to the 90s. Olle and Hertha Blomberg used to receive visitors to their home at Tuggensele. In the summer a sign "Tuggengården - Welcome" used to hang along the Lycksele road. Here in the forest country on the bank of the Ume River they found an inexhaustable source of inspiration, and they wished for more people to experience and get inspired by the beautiful scenery. Olle Blomberg readily spoke to visitors about his painting. In the course of a number of years he developed the educational color clock.A warm welcome from the Hertha och Olle Blomberg's Foundation and the Friends of Olle Blomberg's Society. +46 70-660 64 28
