  • Resumen
    • The first generation of ethnographical museums, around 1900, worked primarily with protección and also with education and partaking.

      From the 1940's regional ethnographical or cultural history museums, as we cali them, have been built all over the country. After the 1960's the traditionally way of working changed towards movable activities, directed at a broad range of target groups. The museums also started cooperating with schools, libraríes and hospitals. One of the goals in the 1970's national cultural policy programme was the promotion of decentralization of culture and therefore national fmancial, support was and still is given to all regional museums.

      The Swedish cultural history museums of today are working more with sponsoring and marketing towards press and public. A good example of this is the over-all History exhib project that took place in 1993-94. National and regional museums from the whole country carne together and produced exhibitions on the same theme, our national history. The project worked strongly towards the media and the campaing resulted in an enormous amount of visitors.

      The museum of tomorrow will probably work more with similarities and parallell phenomenona than with the differences between regions and peopies.

      The International cooperation will increase with the help of organisations like ICOM and NEMO (a network for museums in the EU countries). It is also important that the museums catch up with the latest information technique and use it in their everyday work.
