  • Fun to see what it was like in a prison before. Good guidance and very interesting. Some of the cells were a bit more unpleasant than others, and some stories are hard to believe it has happened. My advice is to visit the site if you have time.

  • School of the Arts has courses in the same building as fängelsemuseumet. I was present at a sewing course in what is known as: the red room. Incredibly beautiful facilities and good environment to be inspired.

  • Here you will be offered depictions of how we in Sweden dealt with criminals from the 1700 's until the latter part of the 20th century. The exhibition is organized and informative. It is unique of its kind. I can heartily recommend a visit if you are interested in social issues in General and penal/correctional system in particular. The business is operated by a non-profit organization and is a concrete expression of the moral forces makes a difference.
