Kulturen’s Christmas Trail
Explore our Christmas Trail and see how Christmas was celebrated in the south of Sweden in the past. From the end of November to the beginning of January, every year. You can pick up a map in the entrance, which will help you find the houses that are a part of the Christmas Trail.
Temporary exhibtion: Coffee – a hot story
The exhibition "Coffee – a hot story" tells of the Swedes’ most beloved beverage from a cultural-historical perspective; from medicinal use to Swedish fika. How did the exotic coffee become a part of the Swedish identity? The exhibition addresses both the darker aspects of coffee, such as slavery and climate change, and brighter ones, like design, socializing and fika.
Temporary exhibition: Knitstart my heart – Anna Bauer
Anna Bauer is known for her inspirational books on hönsestrik as well as her unerring, often tongue-in-cheek, expressions in textile art. Kulturen in Lund’s new exhibition “Knitstart my hear – Anna Bauer” invites you to explore the many techniques she uses in her creative process. The exhibition has its roots in punk as well as traditional crafts. It shifts perspectives in an attempt to capture that which is fragile, incomprehensible and evasive.
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.
Trail: How did people live in the past?
Visit six of our historical homes in the Open air museum and get a glimpse of what life in the south of Sweden was like through different ages and social classes. Ask for the trail in the entrance.
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. To kick off the Christmas Season we have a Christmas Fair, stretching over three days. 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?
