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.
Objects from the collections are continuously used in our exhibitions. In our permanent exhibition Stadslifv, objects from the collections are on display. But we also create temporary exhibitions with objects from the collections.
Now you have the opportunity to search through a selection of our photographs and objects on the Digital Museum. Only parts of our collections are available, but the selection is expanded with more objects over time. You can also contribute with factual information by registering and writing comments.
Digitalization has been extensive and has been ongoing since the early 1990s. The objects are checked, described, photographed and registered in our database. The starting point is our older handwritten catalogs.
Questions about the collections and objects from Trelleborg and Söderslätt can be directed to the responsible curator.
