The Art Museum

Gotland Art Museum aims to exhibit art which offers new perspectives, stimulates discussions, challenges, develops and inspires. We mainly exhibit contemporary art, but also exhibit applied art and design.

Children and adults can enjoy do-it-together activities in our Creative Art Workshop. There is also a reading corner, with a selection of books.

You will find both permanent and temporary exhibitions at Gotland Art Museum. The temporary exhibitions mainly display contemporary art, but also applied art and design. Whether the exhibition is national, local or international, they are all of relevance both to Gotland and beyond.

The permanent exhibitions are on the top floor. Tyra Lundgren was one of our most versatile artists. She was born in 1897 and died in 1979. She worked in Sweden and internationally. She was a pioneer in many aspects. The Concept of Gotland comprises different artists’ works and portrayals of Visby and Gotland. What was it that attracted artists to come here with their painting tools at the turn of the last century?

You can easily make your own way around the museum. You will find more information on the exhibition signs.
