The Children’s Huseby
In the past, the children used to run along the street, hoping that the Iron Master would go for a walk. Because if they greeted him really courteously, he would sometimes give them some coins to buy sweets within the general store.
Like back in the old days
The old general store still sells sweets, and even though the Iron Master might not make an appearance every day, children still are very much welcome at Huseby. To run about on the narrow walks in the park, greet the peacocks and chickens, and, like the children back in the day, ride hobbyhorses in the garden or walk on stilts. These are some of the things that our younger guests like to do.
It is also exciting to visit the Castle and “Statarmuséet” (the museum of the agricultural contract-workers) to see how the children and adults used to live, in rich families as well as in poor.
Closer to nature with naturum
Naturum Kronoberg (the Visitor Centre) suits the whole family and has exciting animal and nature exhibitions with a crafts’ room and an experience room. Find out how heavy a wolf is, creep up in the eagle’s nest, and see if you can guess who the poo belongs to. During summer, bug safaris, hikes, experiments and explorations are organised. Naturum also arranges a nature school and different guided tours for groups.

The children get a map, fun tasks and riddles to solve together with the leader. Ms. Stephens lost her jewels during an evening walk, and now the children can help find them around Huseby Bruk.
Among fairies and trolls
The troll has stolen the fairy’s gold! To get the gold back, the children have to exchange several items from nature that we find along the way to the troll’s nest.
