The area is owned by the Gällivare Hembygd association and is a gift from the Gällivare municipality. The district has been built with buildings from different villages within the municipality of Gällivare and reflects the development of the parish from the mid-1800s. Many of the buildings have moved from the different villages between 1950-1980.
During summer 2020 the café (Strandcafét) is open Wednesday to Sunday 11:00-18:00 till mid-August.
