Värmlands Museum is beautifully located in the middle of Sandgrundsudden in central Karlstad. Every year, 15-20 new exhibitions with cultural history, art and photography of high international class are shown.

Here you will find exhibitions about the history of Värmland, starting as early as the ice age, as well as other permanent and temporary exhibitions of different kinds. The historical journey is described with images, objects and music. There are also temporary exhibitions of varying kinds and sorts.

The museum is housed in two buildings. The oldest one is from 1929 and was designed by Cyrillus Johansson. In 1998 the new museum was completed with a passage connecting the two buildings. Värmlands Museum today has an exhibition area of 3 000 square meters and also has an auditorium with 160 seats. In the café and the restaurant you can enjoy a snack or a good meal. The gift shop has a lot of high quality products made in Värmland, handicrafts, souvenirs and books.
