Rörstrand Museum and 290 years of history

Rörstrand Museum is situated a short distance from Lidköping’s main square right in the centre of town. The museum tells the story of one of Europe’s oldest porcelain factories. The collections span almost three centuries, from 1726 to present time. Here are showpieces as well as chamber pots and popular services but also tools, sketches and a round kiln. You may recognize cups from having coffee in summery lilac bowers, get reacquainted with grandma’s best vase and marvel at the crisp white and blue 18th century faience. Rörstrand is a much loved cultural heritage still in use.

Of course you can purchase a keepsake from your visit and relax a while in the museum café, all in a unique environment.
