Welcome to Kilen!


Kilens Hembygdsgård in Sideby, Kristinestad is a comprehensive museum and leisure area where you can experience beautiful nature. The area is situated close to a place that was used for fishing in old times, next to the coast of the sea Bottenhavet. The museums in the area represent farmer- fishing- and peasantry culture and mediate the knowledge of former generations lifestyle.

In the summer Kilen is a place to gather for events. In addition to the events organized by Kilen, organizations use it as a place for gatherings and it is also used for private parties as weddings, meetings and seminars.

We follow the principles of sustainablity:
We want to be sustainable in ecological, cultural and social aspects respecting the local community and heritage. We respect and take care of environmental issues in our museums and surrounding landscape.
