Whilst the majority of art is by Lars Lerin there are a couple of rooms with photos and paintings by other artists, one or two of which were quite disturbing. Plenty of accompanying items on view, such as letters, books about the Antarctic and diaries...More

Many interesting and creative paintings plus drawings, some of which have super light renditions. Certainly a well presented exhibition and worth a visit if you are in that area of Sweden

This museum shows all aspects of Lerin's art. IT is in the center of the town and a must when visiting Karlstad.
