Address: Södra Järnvägsgatan 2, 351 04 Växjö

Welcome to Smålands museum, Sweden's oldest provincial museum,
with collections dating from 1792. The glass collection is the source of the museum's international reputation

Smålands museum reopened in 1996 as Sweden's museum of glass following extensive expansion and renovations. Småland's cultural heritage and the history
of Kronoberg County are profoundly informed by the work done and the lives lived on its rural industrial estates, which are now primarily devoted to the production
of glass. The museum has nationwide responsibility for collecting, documenting
and exhibiting Swedish glass and its production.
