“interesting buildings”
Reviewed 25 January 2013

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!

“Good photo exhibition, Native Americans and Paris”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

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.

“interesting books and stuff!”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

its like a mini museum and a library as well. Nice and interesting facts to know about Swedish culture. Sadly we can't understand the language. But it's a nice experience.

“Boring museum give the art a miss.”
Reviewed 21 November 2008

"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.
