  • In one of Sundsvall's old storage buildings are found Cultural magazine in a modern style with light at Sundsvalls history. Something that was striking was the sharp contrasts how people lived their lives depending on social class. A huge luxury or a Ditto debilitating poverty left a lasting impression after a tour of the Cultural magazine. Striking was to see Sundsvall sea strategic location full of ships lying on the roads waiting to enter the port for loading or unloading. Looked like taken from Onedinlinjen with full-rigged ship depicting Liverpool at the same time. However, it was not Liverpool without Sundsvall. Clearly, I left the cultural magazine with a much greater knowledge of the whole of the Sundsvall area than what I had before. Didn't know I eg. before that, Sundsvalls inner city after the fire of 1888, was built up with Stockholm as a role model, and that most of the buildings in the Centre are designed by Stockholm architects. After the tour, it was nice and necessary to digest all the powerful impressions in the friendly kondiset that is located in the ground floor and is covered by a glass roof. This is actually the visit more worth in bad weather as it might otherwise be difficult to find amusement in the weather problems. Hardly anybody teaches undo his visit here, which rather requires more time than estimated.

  • The permanent exhibitions about the town history are well-built and worth a visit, and some of the other displays are very good as well. However, most of the museum is in Swedish only.  more »
