Kulturen is a nonprofit organization managing a number of visitor destinations in Skåne, the southernmost county of Sweden. The main part of the activities is conducted at Kulturen in Lund, a museum and an open air museum filling two blocks in central Lund.

Kulturen in Lund is filled with historic buildings and beautiful gardens. Step into our houses and experience life in the city and the countryside, from the Middle Ages to the 1930s.

You can also choose from among twenty exhibitions – from folk art to modern design, from medieval history to the present day, from local culture to world culture. We offer an extensive visitor’s program for all ages, and we celebrate old and new traditions.

Our other visitor destinations are e.g. Kulturen’s Östarp, where you can experience a farm environment from the 1800s, Hökeriet, which is the oldest grocery store in Lund, The Museum of Life (Livets museum), which is about the human body functions, and the Museum of Medical History in Helsingborg, about how the perception of health and illness has changed over time.
