Optand Teknikland is a museum which is located at the Östersund-Optand airfield southwest of Östersund. It was opened on 5 June 2010. The basis for the museum was the Flyg- och Lotta museum which had been open since 1994. The museum is driven by the Aktiebolag Optand Teknikland AB. The largest museum in Jämtland, Jamtli owns 55% of the shares. Three other nonprofit organizations own 15% each: the Jämtlands flyghistoriska förening, Militärhistoriska föreningen i Jämtlands län, and Jemtlands Veteranbilklubb. The museum is mainly financed by Statens Försvarshistoriska museer, The ERDF as well as private donors.
The museum consists of three different exhibitions. There is the Garage (Garaget) which is an antique car exhibition with older cars as well as models. Also the Flyg & Lotta museum which contains all the jet-aircraft that have previously been on the Airforce-wing F 4 Frösön. There is also a room for Lottorna, who had a canteen during the late 1930s–1940s (when the airfield was a secret military airbase in preparation for a German attack). And at last the Garrison (Garnisonen), which is a building containing weapons, uniforms and vehicle models of Swedish army history, mostly from the former Östersund regiments I5 and A4.
