At the Virserum Konsthall (Art Gallery) there are always several exhibitions going on at the same time, with different flavours to suit different tastes. For those who like to be able to identify and find touch-points with their own lives and are drawn to an exhibition that reflects ordinary people’s lives and conditions, a visit to Virserum Konsthall is an obvious choice. We are also an art gallery for the rural sector and those on the periphery. Our aim is to portray life and the Sweden of today that exists in contrast to the commercial big city centred picture that is often presented by the media.

The Virserum Konsthall sees itself as an eco-museum. The art gallery is meant to be a natural part of life in our region and the social, democratic as well as economic progress of our community. The village used to be a furniture metropolis, where the forest and timber resources have been and still continue to be significant for Småland industry. Forest and timber also play an important part in the creation of a sustainable society. Every third year, the Virserum Konsthall places a special focus on the issue of creating a sustainable lifestyle – not just ecologically, but also from a socio-economic perspective. Because, all these things are interrelated!

The gallery houses a small shop and a café, and the surrounding area includes old buildings with a furniture museum, a tele-communications museum, a herb garden and a playground.
