Ebbas Hus

The smallest museum in Malmö

Ebbas Hus is the smallest museum in Malmö. The historical building in the city center still has its original interior furnishings from around 1910.

Ebbas Hus originally dates from the 18th century and is a typical example of a residential building of the city's population at that time. The only modernization that has ever been made to the house, was the installation of electricity and running water.

Until the house became a museum it was last inhabited by the twine maker Ebba Olsson. While the neighboring buildings seriously changed in the 1960s, Ebba steadfastly refused to sell her home. 1984 when she had to move away for reasons of age, she donated her home to the Malmö Museum.

After Ebba Olsson died in 1989 the Malmö Museum bought her old furniture. Then they equipped the house with the old furniture again and opened it as a local history museum in 1991.
