When Skansen Kronan was finished it had 23 canons and was ready for battle, but was never attacked by enemies. During the 19th century it turned into a prison and later on an emergency residency. During the 20th century it was a military museum.
There is also a summer café serving home-made ice-cream, pastrys and more. Newly renovated and decorated in 19th century style.
Guided tours during summer in cooperation with Walknet. Large groups can pre-book all year round. Please go to http://www.skansenkronan.se/ for more information.
