The native homestead of Trostorp
Trostorp homestead is located close to the nearby town Vagnhärad. The homestead consists of a gathering of small houses preserved from the 16th century. Midsummer celebrations, which is a Swedish tradition, take place from about 11.00.
The homestead café is open on Sundays between 11.00–16.00 during the summer.

Åda roof tile museum
Our museum is very small but contains a lot of roof tiles for those interested. The roof is coated with three different types of tiles to illustrate the differences in appearance. We also show how a tiled roof is built technically, how to assess the quality of the old roof tiles, and how to see the difference between extruded, molded and hand-battered bricks. At the museum there is also a small try out roof where both children and adults can try to add both old and new tiles. The oldest documented roof tile we have is made between the years 1650-1750. Our pride is the collection of stamped hand battered tiles, probably the country’s largest. Our small roof tile museum is always unlocked. You are welcome anytime!

The native homestead of Västerljung
Västerljung historical society was formed in 1954, having previously been part of Trosa homestead. The association has about 250 members. Activities: Cottage walks, boat trips, lectures,  autumn market and National day celebrations.

Museum Långmaren
The small former tenant farm Långmaren is an unusually well-preserved part of our folk history. The farm was farmed until 1967, when the county council took over the land at Nynäs. Now both farm buildings immediate environments are protected as an historic building, and are part of Nynäs nature reserve. During the summer on Sundays there is an “open house” at the farm with simple refreshments and guided tours. Occasionally there are various events related to the history of the site. A footpath passes through Långmaren and you may at any time visit the farm even though the houses may be locked.
