Trelleborg Museum’s collections, consisting of approximately 60.000 objects and 120.000 photographs, which can be found at the 2000 square meters storage facilitys of Trelleborg Museum. To a large extent it’s a museum in itself where we regularly offer public tours and tours for booked groups.  

Trelleborg Museum’s collections are primarily based in Söderslätt, the southwestern area of Scania, and mainly consists of cultural-historical objects collected by the museum since 1896. Among the collections, you will find photographs of blocks and streets of Trelleborg during the first half of the 20th century, archival materials, cultural-historical objects such as furniture, agricultural tools, railway objects, maritime artifacts, clothes, textiles, industrial history, pottery from Scania, glass from Trelleborg, peasant costume and objects and much more!

Our collection also includes larger separate collections. The newest addition is our Troell Collection, featuring films and photos from Jan Troell’s long career and life. The collection also include the Borgquist Hat Museum’s objects, Axel Ebbe’s artworks, as well as smaller separate collections such as Olof Christoffersson’s collection of objects and books and art collection featuring local artists.

The storage facilities of Trelleborgs Museum also houses some smaller reconstructions, such as a village shop and an early 20th century classroom.
