For centuries the town’s coppersmiths were housed here. In the 17th century it was known as Nils Bijtare’s homestead; by the 1910s as Coppersmith Yard. Around ten years later, the property was taken over by Eksjö’s museum and folklore society and has been run as a museum since then. Visitors are shown how silverwork, shoemaking and bookbinding are done, not to mention copper work. It is also possible to browse among old toys and household utensils as well as learn about the history of the church, pharmacies and schools.
