Design your conference at the Röhsska museum

Creative and enriching meetings require inspiring environments. Design your conference at the Röhsska Museum and hold your meeting in a historic building in the heart of Gothenburg. Here your stay will be framed by design history’s stories of creativity and desire for expression.

Facilities for every occasion

Combine your next conference, annual meeting or workshop with a design experience which will create new perspectives and lasting impressions. The Röhsska Museum showcases fashion that takes material and form to new levels, furniture design that challenges tradition and function, and thousand-year-old objects that will take your breath away.

You can hire venues for various types of meetings with adjustments for large or small groups available. See below for a more detailed description of our various venues. We offer bookings Tuesday through Friday. Choose between a full day from 8 to 17 or a half-day from 13 to 17.

Entry to the museum is free when you book a meeting during our regular opening hours. If your meeting takes place before the end of June we will offer a complimentary brief introduction to the museum, its history, as well as the current exhibitions.

Extra features

You are of course welcome to order lunch, tea, coffee, and cakes or light snacks for your event or meeting.

Further enhance your visit by booking a guided tour of one of the museum’s exhibitions. Our knowledgeable guides will take you on an in-depth tour of the objects, designers and design history. The tours can be tailored to what is interesting to you and your group, so don’t hesitate to contact us with any ideas or preferences you might have.

About the Röhsska Museum

Design is everywhere and is something which concerns us all. Since it opened in 1916, Röhsska is Sweden’s only museum dedicated solely to design and craft. Historic and contemporary design and craft are presented in exhibitions and public programmes, which give insights into concepts of design and the influence it has on our society.
