Kulturen is the biggest museum in Skåne, the southernmost province of Sweden, and the second oldest open-air museum in the world. The museum was founded in 1892 by Georg Karlin. He realized that the old peasant society was slowly disappearing and resolved to rescue buildings, tools, furniture, clothes and other things.
There are now more than thirty buildings, moved and re-erected here in Kulturen to fill two blocks of the city of Lund. The buildings show how people have lived and worked in Sweden through the ages.
You will also find some fifteen exhibitions about everything from peasants in Skåne to arts and crafts from all over the world.
CHINA – In the middle of the world
METROPOLIS – Lund in the Middle Ages
SURVIVING – Voices from Ravensbrück
MODERNISM – A new art. A new world
CULTURES OF GLASS – From Egypt to Orrefors
THINGS FOR PLAY – A history of toys
FROM A TO Ö – The history of the book
THE UNIVERSITY MUSEUM
SILVER – Craft & design
CERAMICS – From China to Sweden
WEAPONS – Power over life
TEXTILES – A study chamber
Every year there are also many temporary exhibitions.
The park is also worth a visit – it is an oasis for those who wish to savour beautiful settings. There is also a playground in the park which is very popular among the little ones.
Next door to Kulturen is the restaurant Kulturkrogen.
In our museum shop you will find perfect gifts and beautiful swedish artware to bring home.
