You can find works of Sonja Delauny, Henry Moore, Henri Matisse and the famous Mexican painters Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros, as well as numerous Swedish artist.

The extensive permanent collection is complemented by repeatedly changing exhibitions of various artists through the year. At the same time, the museum offers a comprehensive program for children, youth and adults with guided tours, concerts, lectures and an art workshop.
