Until 1931, the museum park was owned by the Wexiö-Alfvesta railway company, and before that it belonged to the deanery. Architect and museum director Paul Boberg (1884-1947) wanted to create an open air museum and strove to bring several old buildings here. The idea was to create a cross section of older buildings. In 1942, the deanery, which had previously been part of the railway restaurant, was included. This was the birthplace of author and Nobel laureate Pär Lagerkvist (1891-1974).
The museum park is owned by the municipal property company Vöfab and Kulturparken Småland is responsible for events and activities held here.
