Chatelaines and convent sisters

For almost 750 years, women have worked, had influence and taken responsibility at Skokloster. With the exhibition’s focus on themes such as the significance of marriage, social responsibility, leadership and the search for new female roles, we follow in the tracks of the women who have lived and worked at Skokloster.
