Really nice exhibition on contemporary culture from the 40´s and until the 80´s. Setting is perfect in the old industrial area. Like when they preserve and develop places like this instead of tearing them down.

Norrkoping was the Manchester of Sweden. The museum does not have a lot but there is an interesting display on a moving belt of household items through the years. The museum next door which has some of the old textile machinery gives a much better view into Swedish life in the area through the past 2 centuries.

It is a perfect place if you want to get to know Swedish history and have a closer look how people used to live here - In Sweden and in Norrkoping. It is in the middle of Norrkoping, so it is really easy to find, and close to other attractions. They have extremely interesting and interactive exhibitions with music, toys,... More

Have you ever heard of a building with seven corners? This is one, built on an island. The museum is very interesting even for a non-swede. We had an englishspeaking guide to accompany us and explain what we didn't undertstand and the museum is free of charge! Nice area with the river surrounding us.

If you plan to visit Nörrköping, it is recommended to visit the Work Museum in the city center near the river. There you can find many historical issues about Swedish factories.

Not rating the museum itself but the restaurant on the top floor. For students like my friends and I this lunch was a good deal (with student prices) as it involved a help-yourself buffet of nice healthy things with a lot of variety. It worked out cheaper eating a decent lunch there and not having much for dinner than having... More
