Astrid Lindgren once said: “If I have managed to brighten up even one gloomy childhood – then I’m satisfied.” It is an understatement to say that she exceeded that goal by a mile. Her stories about characters such as Pippi Longstocking and That Emil have influenced children all over the world. And even though the author passed away in 2002, her legacy is flourishing.
She found a great deal of inspiration inher own childhood home, where she wasborn in 1907. This is where you will find the world’s only permanent exhibition about her life and authorship.
