THE NEW MUSEUM

Come and learn all about the proud history of Swedish porcelain, with thousands of objects and as many human stories behind them. Rörstrand is the factory mark under coffee cups, plates and decorative pieces, but also the story of almost 300 years of innovations and pioneering work, of the creation of beautiful and functional objects.

GUIDED TOURS FOR GROUPS

Do you want to hear stories about what it was like to work in the porcelain factory, learn how to recognize genuine porcelain and why not all tableware has a name? Make your visit extra special and book a guided tour.

EXPLORE THE MUSEUM WITH OUR AUDIOGUIDE

Let the audioguide walk you through the museum's content in 13 sections. Download the app "Läckö Kinnekulle" in App Store or Google Play (free) and listen to the audioguide in Swedish, English or German.

RÖRSTRAND MUSEUM'S COLLECTIONS

The museum houses a treasure trove of objects created by Rörstrand from the 18th century to today. Everything has been made of clay, carved out of the ground and turned into saleable products. The factory was developed through an uninterrupted artistic and technical search, a search for ever better ceramic materials, new methods, expressions and beauty, both in everyday goods and luxury ceramics.

RÖRSTRAND MUSEUM CAFÉ

Taste our own blend of coffee, drink a cup of Mon Amie-tea and enjoy home made "fika" made of the best ingredients, all served on the finest Rörstrand porcelain, of course.

HOW TO GET TO THE RÖRSTRAND MUSEUM

The Rörstrand Museum is a stone’s throw from Nya stadens torg in Lidköping, facing Vänerstranden. The museum’s entrance is in the courtyard of the Rörstrand Center.

By public transport

You can easily get here from Gothenburg and Mariestad on the Kinnekulle train, which has been named Sweden’s most beautiful train journey. From Stockholm you can travel by train with a simple change to bus between Skövde and Lidköping. From Lidköping’s travel center, cross over the railway bridge to the Rörstrand Center. Entrance to the museum from the courtyard.

By car

Follow the tourist signs for Rörstrand from the town’s entrance roads. If you’re travelling along route 44 from Trollhättan, go straight ahead at the roundabout towards the town centre, on Mellbygatan. The easiest way to get to Rörstrand Center and the museum is via Fiskaregatan. Take a right into the gates, pass the paddling hall which you then have on your left and park. The museum has an entrance at Marianne Westman's place, behind the tall building that was previously a pulp preparation tower.
