Kivik Museum & Archives

Ethnographical and ethnological local heritage museum for Kivik and the surrounding area. The museum houses around 4000 items from the Kivik area that depict life in a typical locality in Österlen from the Stone Age to modern times with emphasis on the years 1750-1950.

During the years 1850-1900, Kivik was transformed from a poor fishing village to one of Sweden’s largest export ports, which is depicted in one of the exhibits. Kivik also has one of the oldest cinemas in Sweden, which is featured in the museum. There are, of course, exhibitions on local crafts, agriculture, fire brigades, schools and many other subjects. The museum was completely reconstructed in 2011-12 with new educational and themed exhibitions. The museum is a part of the network Österlenmuseer i samverkan – Österlen Museums in Cooperation, which, together with the production company Artes Liberales AB, has produced the educational museum film Jakten på historien – The Hunt for History, written and directed by Anna Hellsten. The film is shown in the museum.

There are more than a hundred archives containing documents, films and pictures from private citizens, companies and associations in Kivik and the surrounding area. Here you can research the history of the district!

The museum shop has books and genealogies about Kivik for sale. Welcome!
