This museum contains many historical items like clothing, shoes, furnishings from the 1800s and prior. It is certainly worth a walk through.

Tells a lot about the history of the region, it is explained in a way where you can clearly see the cultural evolution of the region and what makes them a different from the rest of Sweden.

The glass museum and emigration institute both included in the same ticket are both worth a visit, but Småland's museum was just dull and we basically just passed through it. And what does the Austrian Ötzi have to do with Småland in Sweden?

Nice provincial museum

This museum centers on the lives of particularly farming people in Smaaland, but also the urban development of larger towns, and leads nicely into the overpopulation of the mid-1800´s and subsequent emigration to North America, which is the subject of the neighboring museum.

Be sure to check out the temporary exhibit

When I was there, "Loranga! Loranga!" was on view, and I had a chance to learn about a popular (VERY popular) children's literature character who runs around doing absolutely manic things wearing a bathrobe and his hair wrapped in a flowered towel (no, no -- there's no hint of what you're surely thinking).

Informative and imaginative displays
Aug 2015 • Couples
One of the very best regional museums I have ever visited. Documenting the history of Småland from prehistoric times and onward. All of the information for the various displays is summarised in English and German. The only downside is that the lighting levels are kept low so it can be a bit difficult to see all the detail at times.

This is an excellent museum to explain the massive emigration from Sweden and especially Smaland to North American in the 19th century. Charts and maps highlight the displays.

This place was worth checking out. There were a number of different interesting displays. I thought the currency collection was superb and a must see for any coin collector.

Memorys in the attic
Dec 2013 • Solo
Learn about history of the fantastic part of Sweden called Småland.I also liked information about Smålands capitial Växjö(my birthplace) did not know that it burned many times and to stop that they decided to not build houses of tree.Information is available in text,pictures,video and audio.One part has enviroments from the past in natural size. One room is sounds from before and things that helps you bring back memories from before for example the 50,60,70 and 80`s.The attic of memories is filled with different things from the past and brings back many memories,One part of museum was an exhibition of an artist called Nina Hemmingsson that made cartoons and pictures that were honest and fun.Best:Attic of memories Worst:No småland t-shirts to buy in museum shop.
