Overview

Kulturen is a nonprofit organization managing a number of museums and open-air museums at several locations in Skane, the southernmost county of Sweden. The main part of the activities is conducted at Kulturen in Lund, which is two blocks in central Lund filled with historic buildings and beautiful gardens for you to visit. Step into our houses and experience life in the city and the countryside, from the Middle Ages to the 1930s. You can also choose from among twenty exhibitions - from folk art to modern design, from medieval history to the present day, from local culture to world culture. There is always hustle and bustle at Kulturen in Lund. Here we celebrate high festivals and our own traditions such as Children's Day and Ghost Night and we offer an extensive visitor's program for all ages. When you get hungry, you can eat at the restaurant or grab a snack at our cozy cafe. Our other visitor destinations are e.g. Kulturen's Östarp, where you can experience a farm environment from the 1800s, Hökeriet, which is the oldest grocery store in Lund, The Museum of Life (Livets museum), which is about the human body functions, and the Museum of Medical History in Helsingborg, about how the perception of health and illness has changed over time. Kulturen conducts educational and scientific activities throughout the entire field of cultural history. A major part of our work consists of storage provisioning, documentation, and collection care. We also carry out assignments within archaeology and building preservation. Kulturen was founded in 1882 and has more than 3.500 members. As a member you support our work and help us to safeguard our cultural heritage for future generations. Our members also have free admission to Kulturen in Lund and nine other open-air museums in the Nordic region, including Skansen in Stockholm and Den gamle by in Aarhus (Denmark). Kulturen recieves operating grants from Region Skåne, Lund Municipality, and Sjöbo Municipality.

I've seen better museum of this sort both in Denmark and in Norway, but it was interesting nonetheless. I think it is quite expensive for what you get to see, especially because not all of it has been adapted and translated into English. It's great...More

It's amazing that some one has been preserving these buildings for over a hundred years. It is hidden off the street, you have no idea what is in there. Some of the artifacts in the museum are so well preserved for their age.
