  • Foyer arouses interest with her space and visibility to parts of the exhibition. They can already in the shop understand something of what Culture has to offer. The staff at the counter are friendly and focused on providing service. You will receive a map and it's useful if you want to go to a specific place, for culture is great. There are both permanent and temporary exhibitions. In a very nice and illustrative way you can for example. see Laidler and Skåne from a historical perspective. Archaeological finds on display on the ground floor of the main house and also a person who is moderately interested in this can me find something of interest. Art lovers should seek out high up in the main building and look at modernism. Gans boards cannot of for hacks. There is more of interest to see there. Go up and see for yourself. The outdoor environment is at its best in spring and summer for those who think green is nice. There are lots of different types of houses to look into. Boktryckarkonstutställningen might attract someone, or "design house". Everything on display is carefully thought out and nicely presented. The sweet Church Bosebo is worth a look. It melts all appropriate training that you take in when you went around at the cafe, which offers sandwiches and a nice atmosphere. No extravagance on the selection but served with love and warmth.
