The Open-air Museum – a collection of historic buildings
Kulturen in Lund’s Open-air Museum features a collection of historic buildings extending across two adjoining sites in the heart of Lund. Some of the buildings still stand on their original sites, while others have been moved here from various parts of southern Sweden. Learn how people in the region lived in past ages and in various social settings.
Katja of Sweden
With her own department in Saks Fifth Avenue, covers of leading fashion magazines and sold-out collections at Harrods in London, Katja Geiger—better known as Katja of Sweden—was Sweden’s first internationally renowned fashion designer. Trend-sensitive and determined to succeed, she broke with the era’s narrow ideal of femininity to carve her own path. See the exhibtion Katja of Sweden when you visit Kulturen in Lund!
Kulturen in Lund has a broad range of permanent and temporary exhibitions. Many of these exhibitions are based on our cultural history and archaeological collections, although visitors are also welcome to view photographic exhibitions and displays as diverse as interactive exhibitions for children with playtime themes and exhibitions on democracy and human rights.
Kulturen in Lund has a programme of activities to suit all ages and we celebrate traditions both new and old. If you plan to visit during the summer, why not come and join us in our park when we celebrate Sweden’s National Day or Midsummer’s Eve? We also hold the Christmas at Kulturen (Julen på Kulturen) event in December, when we invite visitors to experience an array of seasonal Swedish traditions.
