The last eel fisherman

For two years, the photographer Charlotte Kronlund has followed the eel fisherman Eve Ask and the ancient and tiring work with eel fishing at Spraggehusen. The result was an appreciated book and an exhibition with 28 pictures from the book "The last eel fisherman?" The exhibition has been produced in collaboration with the Association for Antiquities and Homeland Care in southeastern Skåne and runs until 31/1 2021. Free admission.

Open doors

The museum has made a review of all the historic doors that have been collected for the Association for Antiquities and Homeland Care in southeastern Skåne over the years. Here you will find decorated Simrishamn doors, doors from villages and fishing villages on Österlen, the hot bath house's old door and folk-painted doors. The exhibition opens on 21/11 and runs until 18/9 2021. Free admission.

Noticeable first - about clothes and people

The badges first show clothes from the 1700th century until 1970 from the Association's collections at the Österlen Museum. The clothes really tell all the stories at the same time - it is about communication, community, exclusion, status and economy, destiny, tradition and renewal. Therefore, the exhibition becomes a sample map of human behavior and a way of telling our local history. And thus also an exhibition not only for the already interested. Free entrance.

Harvesting rainwater

"Harvesting rainwater" is an installation in the museum's garden created together with Eva Mathiasson, Sophia Callmer and Susanna Widlundh. Here is how rainwater can be collected, stored and used to create sustainable gardens and a better environment for ourselves and future generations. In collaboration with Samhällsbyggnadsförvaltningen Gata & Park and with funds from Sparbanken Syd. During the year, more installations will be displayed in the museum garden. Fri entrance.
