Attic of Memories—Kronoberg County’s Citizens in the 1900’s
Småland Museum built its own attic—The Attic of Memories—and filled it with objects which reflect the county’s citizens’ own 20th century. In an exciting environment with unusual light and sound effects, visitors encounter known and unknown objects that evoke memories and spur the imagination.
On the Way in 19th Century Kronoberg:
Småland Museum, the country’s oldest provincial museum, was founded in the 1800’s. The museum’s halls and storage facilities have, with the passage of time, been filled with traces of the past.
Glimpses From Antiquity:
This exhibition depicts prehistory using models and finds from the county. Here you can, among other things, look into a cist and a Bronze Age house, feel cup and ring marks and rune stones, as well as see grave finds and a Viking sword.
Part of the exhibition also shows a skillfully made replica of Ötzi the Iceman and his equipment.
The coin cabinet in Småland Museum was instituted in 1792 and promoted during its early years by Bishop Olof Wallquist. Today the coin cabinet contains about 40,000 objects and is adjacent to an extensive numismatic library.
Established in 1867, Smålands museum is Sweden’s oldest county museum. Its permanent exhibitions
include objects and historical items of regional affiliation from the Stone Age and later. In addition, the museum displays temporary exhibitions featuring highly topical themes. There is also an archeological section and a section concerning preservation of old buildings.
