Considering Sundsvall is a very small town with a little over 100,000 inhabitants, this is a good little museum and well worth a visit. The Kulturmagasinet is located near the city center bus terminal, near the best spot in any town. The building itself is a beautiful brick building or a number of building connected by large glass annexes. My... More

I can't give a high score because it is not the National Gallery or anything! But is is a lovely place to visit if you are in Sundsvall. Very good photographic exhibition. Just a nice space, and well looked after.

Museum where there is something for all family. Nice building, bright just to sit and spend some hours working or drinking coffee with a friend. Small but nice souvenir shop with very friendly employees.

Small compacted museum about the city and surrounding nature. Also from time to time other culture show. Won't take too long to finish but worth a visit.

The place is, for my taste and opinions, carried by the genuine collection of prehistoric archeological findings. I also enjoy reading some magazines in the library.

This is one of my favorite places in town, to browse for books, read, visit the museum or just hang out with the kids to let them play in the nice, cool playground outside, or inside the children's section. The place has so much to offer, books in foreign languages, a local museum, and a cafe that has very good... More

This buiding is a nice looking achitectural design furnished with a glass roof. Inside you will find the Sundsvall StadsBibliotek. It's a library and bookstore at the same time caters to Philanthropist and Sundsvall visitors. All books are written in Scandinavian language. Interesting part is the mini museum provides the historical stuffs of the the hometown. e.g Antiques Swedish dolls.
