Museum where there is something for all family. Nice building, bright just to sit and spend some hours working or drinking coffee with a friend. Small but nice souvenir shop with very friendly employees.

A few well spent hours in the Kultur Magasinet when rain was falling down... Good quality exhibition, fiancée picked up a release shutter cable for his camera, small café with good service. Nice and homely in a lovely building. Didn't get time to check out the library.

The museum is very close to the hotel we stayed at so there was no way we would miss it. Entrance is free. There are several sections to explore and I personally loved the collection of animals. Recommended when visiting Sundsvall.

"Kulturmagsinet" consists of a library and a museum. The library offers free internet and some international newspapers which is great when you are traveling. The museum is divided between archological finds of some interest and art. The main exhibit was kind of strange though, must have been some local hero trying to imitate the likes of Rothko and Malevitj. Completely unoriginal art.

Exhibitions on the second and third floor was curated from the collections. Again we find nothing of international standing, Mostly modernism, again unknowns imitating their heroes without knowledge and sense of color, I know it isn't fair to expect a small town museum to display major works by international artists but when I visit places like "Kulturmagsinet" I expect to learn something about local contemporary art. What´s going on in Sundsvall? If "Kulturmagsinet" (the cultural warehouse) is something to judge by nothing has happened since the 60's.

The archeological exhibits and the architecture itself with a large glass roof connecting several older buildings are on the other hand quite nice and well worth a look. It's a pity they couldn't find some interesting art to fill the place with. Also on the plus side, free admission.

We walked the city 'storgaten' from our Scandic City Hotel admiring the interesting 'turn of the 20th C' architecture along the way. Arriving at the Sundsvall Museum, we discovered an architect had connected 4 of these 1890's buildings with glass providing for a large open courtyard. This space was used for their library, cafe sitting, a museum gift shop, and above, connecting walkways between the building's upper floors.
The local museum had an elevator to see its 3 floors of early household items, artifacts from a 500 AD burial site, stuffed birds and mammals, and a great view of the Good Morning Hotel barge with the pulp mill in the distance.

I love that there are places like this: a meeting point for culture. But the majority of the different exhibitions didn't feel cohesive. Felt a bit like "we take what we have and put it here".

If rainy go and actively sit here. Read about the towns history, let the children play, have a cup of coffee or just look at the others.

Considering Sundsvall is a very small town with a little over 100,000 inhabitants, this is a good little museum and well worth a visit. The Kulturmagasinet is located near the city center bus terminal, near the best spot in any town. The building itself is a beautiful brick building or a number of building connected by large glass annexes. My favorite part of the museum is on the 3rd floor where the history of Sundsvall is shown and how it made the transformation from a wooden town to a town made of stone. The first floor exhibits change regularly and on the occasion I visited it was all based around Astrid Lindgrens ER Book, the whole world is burning. This museum is well worth visiting for 1/2 a day when you are in Sundsvall.

This buiding is a nice looking achitectural design furnished with a glass roof. Inside you will find the Sundsvall StadsBibliotek. It's a library and bookstore at the same time caters to Philanthropist and Sundsvall visitors. All books are written in Scandinavian language. Interesting part is the mini museum provides the historical stuffs of the the hometown. e.g Antiques Swedish dolls.

Four former store houses put together to host several cultural institutions, such as the libray and Sundsvall Museum. The glass roof makes an intersting architectual combination that's defenitly worth a visit. just walks in and have a morning coffe at the library restaurant. Enjoy the flow and what the people walk in and out. Best way to exprience Sundsvall 's daily life!
