February 3, 2017 - until further notice
Smålands museum 150 years
We celebrate the museum turning 150 with an exhibition inspired by both the 150 years that have passed at the museum and by the great variety of objects in our collections. We also ask “What is a museum?” “Why does Småland Museum exist?” “Who was behind its creation?” “And where are we now?”
Only in swedish

January 27, 2017 - August 27, 2017
The Auschwitz Album
The exhibition features photographs portraying the arrival of a trainload of Jews from Hungary in May 1944. These are the only photographs from inside the death camp and are, thus, wholly unique. Documenting the ‘final solution’ was forbidden and why these photographs were taken and were mounted in an album with carefully calligraphed titles we do not know. But we do know that the photographs were taken by two SS men.
Don’t miss our permanent exhibitions:
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.
With English and German translation
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.
With English and German translation

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.
Only in swedish

Coin Cabinet:
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.

Restaurant at Smålands Museum: Izakaya Moshi

An izakaya is a Japanese pub or "drop in". They can be luxurious or simple but the well-prepared side dish is always in the center, with inspiration from Japan of course, but also from Vietnam, Korea and China. 
At lunch they serve dumplings, noodle soup and salads. 
The evening menu allows selection of dishes like rice paper rolls, dumplings and experimental sushi. 
You can order just a little bit, or a whole menu.
