"County Museum Halmstad" Halmstad Things to Do Tip by Sjalen

Halmstad Things to Do: 24 reviews and 39 photos


The Halmstad branch of the county museum of Halland is set in a great park along the river and was specially built in 1933 after a Ragnar Hjort drawing. It shows you a bit about Halland's history as you would expect. There are pictures and information from old Halmstad and notably a section on the Danish-Swedish wars raging here since Halland is an oblong county with just a short distance from Halmstad to the Swedish border in those days and the Swedes kept attacking. There is also a floor dedicated to local art, especially the Halmstad Group which introduced surrealism to Sweden, and I even found a painting by my mum's old colleague's famous father :))). If you want to see much more of them, you should head to the tiny village of Mjällby to the north where there is a museum about the group.

Address: Tollsgatan, Halmstad
Directions: Through Norre Port gate, then through the park along the river.
