The City Historical Museum of Söderköping


The City Historical Museum of Söderköping has a permanent exhibition of the city´s development from the early Middle Ages to the present day. Two theme exhibitions taking place throughout the year. One shows the photo history of Söderköping and is shaped like a photographic studio in the early 1900s. The second, Young in the 50s (Ung på 50-talet), has been formed as a contemporary youth café.

The museum was opened in 1978 and operated by the regional historical society St Ragnhilds Gille. The museum is housed at the second floor of the city's oldest school building. Already in the 1500s it was used.

The ground floor has the three original school halls. One of these, called Trivialen, is used as a meeting hall for the story nights, study circles and other small gatherings.

The museum has free admission but welcomes a voluntary contribution to its business.

In the museum's front desk are local historical literature and Yearbooks for sale. It is also possible to order digital copies of phots from the extensive photo archive.
