Two museums in one building
Founded in 1867, Smaland’s Museum is Swedens oldest county museum. Permanent exhibitions present objects from the 19th and 20th century. Småland’s Museum has frequent temporary exhibitions presenting Kronoberg’s cultural history in the past, present and future.
Smalands Museum and the Swedish Glass Museum are two museums under the same roof. The Swedish Glass Museum is located in the older parts of the museum and presents glass from all over the world and through all times. Let yourself be enchanted by the oldest Swedish glass, dating back to the 1580s. Admire the royal cups and simple bottles from the 17th and 18th centuries. Enjoy the bourgeois crystal and the farmers’ pressed glass of the 19th century. Marvel at world famous design from the 20th century and contemporary Swedish glass.
