We went to cheese and wine tasting, very good information about wines and cheese. Lasted about an hour, possible to add evening meal after. Well worth doing!

There isn't much to this museum, but the two floors that do the heavy lifting about the sunken war ship Kronan are very cool, especially if you are a SCUBA diver. Definitely worth visiting, especially when the castle is closed.

We visited attracted by the Konan exhibit. On the third floor of 4, this was well done and created a sense of the personal stories of those on-board from the artefacts recovered from the wreck site so far. Explanations in English just enough to retain...More

Not so much a county museum as a museum about the 17th-century warship Kronan. 4 floors of exhibitions where the top floor is mainly a restaurant, the 1st floor - the entrance and shop, the 2nd-floor playground and temporary exhibitions and then the absolute highlight...More

If you haven't been here before then maybe go. You can see remanings from the vessel " Kronan". The exhibitions feels a bit out of date. Not sure if they would be interesting enough for young kids and not appealing for grown ups either really

This museum has a delightful exhibit on the prolific Swedish painter Jenny Nystrom. Her family willed her entire collection of work, and many artifacts of her life, to the museum. She popularized the Swedish Tomten elf with her charming book and card illustrations. There's a...More
