  • To do

An interactive museum focusing on the civil and military effects on Sweden, based on the Cold War.

The museum's exhibition alternates military and political events with an impact on everyday popular culture. What happened around the world during the Cold War and how did it affect us? Go into time-typical environments such as the authentic 1950s kitchen or the medical tent where the operation is in full swing. If you start to get tired in the legs, you can settle down in the café with a cup of coffee and a homemade bun.

The café also arranges most things for your group or conference. Contact us on 054-15 80 60 or for more information. In the museum shop you will find gifts for young and old, as well as literature on military history and the Cold War. It also sells military clothing and gadgets. If you are looking for really thick socks for winter, a backpack with multiple functions or a rain jacket for midsummer, you will find it here.
