Vetlanda Museum is a municipal museum of art and cultural history that has been given the task of documenting, looking after and telling the story of Vetlanda’s natural and cultural heritage.

The museum does this by taking part in culture and development projects and by providing support and service to organisations, folklore societies, companies and individuals.
With the help of short decision processes, we want to create opportunities and be part of creative meetings for our visitors and culture friends. We are investing in free admission and culture for everyone.

The museum building is located in the town park in the old court building from 1938. The old session hall holds 10-14 temporary exhibitions on contemporary visual arts, handicraft and form every year.
Our permanent rooms exhibit work by local artists such as Marcus Larsson, Ludvig Frid, V.A Isaksson, David Edström, Adolf Jonsson and Karl Andersson, and a historic church room displays two fantastic textile chasubles with embroidery from our Njudung churches.
The room next door gives us a foretaste of our local mineral deposits and also has one of Count Bielke’s Gustavian mineral cabinets on show.

In the entrance, there is a shop with an interesting range of products and information.

Vetlanda Museum has three branch museums: Ädelfors Gruv- och Mineralmuseum (mine and mineral museum), Högarps Bymuseum (village museum) and Vetlanda Skolmuseum (school museum), two of which are run by contract.
