Art museum in Kristinehamn
Kristinehamns Konstmuseum is the art museum in Kristinehamn. It is located in the Marieberg district northwest of the city centre, directly on the shore of Lake Vänern in the municipality of Kristinehamns Kommun.
The art museum in Kristinehamn was opened in 1997 in the former hospital district in Marieberg. At first it was located in the attic of a former therapy ward. Three years later, the museum was selected for the project MUSEEN and the old boiler house was converted into a modern museum.
The exhibitions at Kristinehamns Konstmuseum
The art museum has its own collection of works by artists associated with the region. A large part of the collection was donated to the museum by the Kristinehamn-born artist Bengt Olson. Thanks to Bengt Olson's initiative, the well-known Picassoskulpturen also made it to Kristinehamn.
Since the opening of the museum, exhibitions of Henri Matisse, Alvar Aalto and also Pablo Picasso have already been shown. The focus, however, is on the presentation of contemporary art and even unknown artists have the chance to show their works.
The exhibitions change throughout the year and can also be explored by yourself with an audio guide.
