Astrid Lindgren, our best-loved author, was born and grew up at Näs. This is where she got the inspiration for many of her stories and books. This is where she heard the stories and met many of the people and settings that laid the foundation for her books. This is where she climbed the lemonade tree and played with her siblings in the woodshed.
This is where she jumped in the hay and listened to stories in Kristin’s kitchen.
At the exhibition you’ll meet the jazz chick, the mother, the editor of children’s books and the creator of public opinion Astrid Lindgren.
The gardens at Astrid Lindgren’s Näs are open gardens – a place of culture, conversation, fun, debate, play, seriousness and humour. The green settings have grown out of themes that were important to Astrid Lindgren throughout her authorship, themes such as, for example, freedom, courage, melancholy and joy of life.
