Örebro County Museum
The County Museum was founded in 1856. In fact, this makes it one of the oldest in Sweden. Today, Örebro County Museum is a vibrant meeting place for all ages, with four different exhibitions that you can see at the castle for free. The entrance is the same as the castle’s public entrance in the southwest tower, then two steps up and via the ramp to the Vasa Hall. Just drop in!
Visit the county museum exhibitions at the castle
As you wander around the county museum’s exhibitions, you can learn about both art and history. In the castle’s south-eastern tower, for example, you will find the permanent exhibition The Child in the Tower by Jan Håfström. After an influential artistic life in the world, the Örebro artist returns home with an “archaeological excavation of himself” in a tower adapted to his ideas.
There are also castle history models that tell the history of the castle’s construction, Boom in Bergslagen on the history of iron and the county, and the exhibition The Mirror of Possibilities. A reflective exhibition about how the consumer society began to form over 200 years ago.
