Address: Storgatan 46, 90326 Umeå

Sweden's first museum of history focused on women. It raises the profiles of women, their roles and stories in the otherwise traditionally male-based historiography.

It is a living museum that attracts repeated visits.The Women’s history museum has the past as its starting point. However, it will also examine the present. In this connection, the spotlight falls on the tenacious norms and structures that still restrict the life choices of women and men. Does it all sound politically correct, a little boring? Well, whatever you are expecting, you will be surprised. There will be exhibitions that can be felt, that can be heard and that go straight to the heart. Sound, light, images, films and striking stage sets will all be used. The Women’s history museum will surprise. It twist and turn aspects and perspectives. It is a place for action, laughter and debate.

Free guided tour every Saturday at 13.00.
