Art and museums

Halmstad is a lively city for art. Here you’ll find a wide range of everything from local to international art.

The city is rich with public art that you can experience at first hand. The municipal council is also investing a lot in exhibitions and education. Mjellby Konstmuseum - Halmstadgruppens museumexternal link and Halmstads Konsthall together make up a basis for the municipal council’s art initiative.
