Orrefors museum - Treasures of the Glass Kingdom - Glass Kingdom

In the Orrefors Museum, the unique historical glass treasure from the Orrefors glass factory is stored and displayed in one place. Everything from past to present is represented in the collection displayed in the exhibition hall. The glass factory in Orrefors was founded as early as 1898 and has since then been strongly associated with beautiful crystal glass, quality and great craftsmanship.

Our purpose is to keep the collection and associated archives intact, to continue to be able to show and make available Orrefor's historic art glass and to spread knowledge, both nationally and internationally, about this unique cultural heritage. Every year Glasrikets Skatter arranges exhibitions and events in Orrefors Museum.

In its heyday, Orrefors had close to 600,000 visitors annually and was one of Sweden's top tourist destinations. When the glass manufacturing was shut down, the number of visitors dropped dramatically and the air went out of the community. However, Orrefors Museum and art glass are still one of Sweden's strongest brands and the collection belongs to both national and international cultural heritage that must be preserved for the future.
