Earlier this year, the museum opened its doors after being closed for renovation since 2013. Apart from modernising and restoring an old listed building, the renovation challenge also included merging three museums into one. These days the music, theatre and puppet collections – which used to be in separate museums – all share the same roof, and the transformation has been successful. “The feedback has been nothing but positive. In addition, our intention to have an intergenerational appeal seems to have worked really well. When I walk around the museum, I often see 70-year-old grandmothers enthusiastically engaged in discussions about aspects of the exhibition with their six-year-old grand-children,” says museum director Daniel Wetterskog.
