The museum is the only museum of drawings in the Nordic countries. We present exhibitions from both Nordic and international artists, as well as exhibitions from our own collection. The museum’s ambition is to highlight the art of drawing, and function as a forum for both new trends and historical flashbacks. We also arrange various workshops, lectures and conserts, as well as educational activities for schools.
A visit to The Museum of Drawings is also an architectural experience. The museum is accommodated in Laholm’s old fire station, which has gotten a modern and exciting extension facing the river Lagan.
At our lower levels, you will find a drawing studio open for the public and Laholm’s Pottery Museum. Once upon a time, the beaches of river Lagan and their fine potter’s clay turned Laholm into one of the country’s most important potter’s towns. In the museum you find a permanent exhibition with Laholmskeramik (pottery from Laholm) from the 20th century, and temporary exhibitions.
Feel free to enjoy a cup of coffee in our café while you visit us. And why not end your trip with some browsing in our shop by the reception desk? We offer drawing materials and a selection of books.
