Explore innovative design, popular design, national design and international design - all under one roof. The museum’s temporary exhibitions feature everything from industrial design to artisanry.
A regional design museum
Welcome to an exciting meeting place for design. The museum features the latest trends interspersed with fascinating design history and hosts three new exhibitions each year. The ground floor of the museum is open to visitors free of charge. On the ground floor, you can take a break at the café with a view of the Ätran river, browse design magazines or buy a souvenir at the design shop. You can also visit the exhibition in the project room.
Take a look at the programme before your visit to make sure you can time it with the next available guided tour of the exhibitions. The programme also contains information about presentations and workshops organised by the museum. During the summer months, you can also join us for a guided walk through the town.
There is plenty for children to explore and do in Ria the Rat’s play corner. The museum also organises fun activities for children on public holidays. The museum’s calendar and opening hours can be found on its website.
New design in a historical building
The museum is located downstream of Tullbron (the Toll Bridge) by the river Ätran. The half-timbered building was built in 1865 and is closely tied to the area’s once-substantial grain export industry. Experience the charming interior, which is influenced by the building’s original function as a granary. The supporting wooden pillars and whitewashed brick walls still leave little doubt as to its proud history. The grain was dried in the tall, pointed storage tower, the tip of which still swivels when the wind blows.
