Opened in 1916, the Röhsska Museum has been recognized as Sweden’s foremost museum for design and applied arts, where everyday objects are made more pleasing to the eye through decoration and design. From Asian ceramics dating back to 2500 B.C. to the present day, the permanent collection features over 50,000 objects. Visitors will experience the creative expressions, styles, fashion and artistic concepts of design in its many forms.
In addition, the museum regularly presents temporary exhibitions from distinguished Swedish and international artists and designers that showcase both experimental as well as established design.
The gift shop offers keepsakes connected to the various collections and the café is perfect for a light bite to eat and a cup of coffee or tea. The Röhsska museum is located a stone’s throw from the main street Kungsportsavenyn and is a must see when visiting Gothenburg.
