Gold and jewelery have always had a special meaning for the Romans. In the past, Roman women carried the family's capital in the form of jewelry. They were the family's life insurance, as well as something to decorate with. If something happened and the family needed money, it was easy to get rid of a piece of jewelry to sell or pledge. Many of these Roman objects have today been sold or melted down. The exhibition Roman Jewelery tells about a part of Roman and Swedish cultural history that is being lost. The exhibition is a walking exhibition produced by the Romska Cultural Center in Malmö together with the Regional Museum Kristianstad. It tells about Swedish-Swedish jewelry tradition from a cultural-historical, aesthetic and material perspective. Pictures, stories and real gold. The exhibition opens 25/4 and runs until 30/9.
After many years of cooperation, this group was formed, which now presents a wide selection of pictures and a slide show in Rian at the Österlen Museum.

Each member shows pictures that illustrate personal orientation and style in an exhibition with multiple orientations. The exhibition opens 15/2 and runs until 30/5.
The municipality's newly purchased art
Every year, the municipality of Simrishamn buys new art from locally anchored artists to the municipality's collection. The exhibition shows art purchased in 2019. The exhibition opens 15/2 and runs until 30/5.
Noticeable first - about clothes and people
The marks first show clothes from the 1700 century up to 1970 from the Society's collections at Österlens museum. The clothes really tell all the stories while it is about communication, community, exclusion, status and economy, fate, tradition and renewal. Therefore, the exhibition becomes a test chart of human behavior and a way of telling our local history. And thus also an exhibition not only for the already interested.
"Harvesting rainwater" is an installation in the museum's garden created together with Eva Mathiasson, Sophia Callmer and Susanna Widlundh. Here is shown how rainwater can be collected, stored and used to create sustainable gardens and a better environment for ourselves and future generations. In collaboration with the Public Administration Administration Gata & Park and with funds from Sparbanken Syd. During the year, more installations will be displayed in the museum garden.
