Gustavsberg Porcelain Museum
The Gustavsberg Porcelain Museum re-opens on June 6 with an exhibition featuring the work of Lisa Larson
The Gustavsberg Porcelain Museum is a part of Nationalmuseum. The museum, which has been closed for renovation since the autumn of 2017, will re-open on Sweden’s National Day.
The Gustavsberg Porcelain Museum will show visitors how tradition lives on in the present day. New exhibitions will highlight the history of porcelain objects from several different perspectives, not least everyday life. The museum's activities will constitute an important part of the design mission of Nationalmuseum.
As before, the Porcelain Museum will feature both long and short-term exhibitions. The opening exhibition about the artist Lisa Larson's rich production range for the Gustavsberg Porcelain Factory will be on display throughout the year. In addition to this, about 2,000 objects will be presented in completely redesigned exhibitions that draw upon the extensive Gustavsberg collection to highlight the factory's cultural heritage and history.
The Gustavsberg Porcelain Museum has been close due to renovation since 2017. Together with Värmdö Municipality, Nationalmuseum has revitalised the premises. When the museum reopens, it will be able to welcome more visitors and display more porcelain and design from the collection. The countdown has begun. Plan to pay us a visit in the summer of 2020.
The Gustavsberg Collection
The collection contains over 45,000 items from the production period of the Gustavsberg Porcelain Factory: from objets d’art and splendid urns to familiar tableware and older sanitary ware. The collection also includes enamel and plastic objects, as well as sample items that never came to be produced.
