Sandhamn’s own small archipelago museum, known as Australia, is located next to the Customs House, which is marked as a culturally significant building. A group of enthusiastic islanders on Sandhamn founded the museum back in 1966.
The small red house with the bell tower outside is an old washhouse from the early part of the 18th century. Inside you find plenty of exciting objects that tell us about the life on the island during the past centuries. It was often a hard life on a rocky island, on the edge of the archipelago.
