Jönköping County Museum
Experience the art of John Bauer and the cultural history of Småland.
The museum buildings are home not only to exhibitions but also to archives, storerooms, an extensive picture archive, a painting conservation studio and much more.
Jönköping County Museum’s art collection numbers around 5000 works of art, including the collection of the Jönköping County Art Society, comprising the ‘Pauli collection’ and the ‘Gannevik collection’, and of course the art of John Bauer – the famous illustrator of fairy tales and folklore, who came from Jönköping.
Children (of all ages!) can visit the ‘fairy-tale wardrobe’ and dress up as trolls, princes and princesses, and various other characters.
