The bulk of Gotland Museum’s collections are stored at Magasin Visborg. This is where we store every object accumulated by or donated to the museum.
Our collections comprise about 450 000 items. Magasin Visborg was inaugurated in 2014, a modern museum collections centre, where items are stored and visitors are welcome. Here you will find Gotlandic picture stones, furniture from different eras, ecclesiastical and secular art, prehistoric artefacts, textiles, our natural history collection and much much more.
Are you interested in Gotland Museum’s collections? Do you have a specific interest, such as archaeology, textiles, armoury or ecclesiastical art? Are you a postgraduate or student? Make an appointment with us.
Our collections include items of archaeological and cultural historical interest, natural historical objects and art. We store photographs, photographic plates, negatives and films. We also have reports, inventories and other documents.
Many of our objects have been registered in a database called Collective Access. We work continuously on digitalizing photographs and other information, as well as photographing items so that the digital catalogue is always up to date.
