Arts & Museums
This unique museum is one of the most famous in Lund, and perhaps in all of Sweden. It culls the finest and most fascinating artifacts from the University's collection of centuries' worth of objects from cultures all around the world. Objects of African art, indigenous Scandinavian archaeological finds, native American products and ancient Greek sculpture can be seen side-by-side. There are also archives relating to these finds and the anthropological department that collected them, which can be viewed by appointment.
Housed within the Lund University, a part of the Student Life Museum, the Nose Academy is a peculiar collection of hundreds of nose impressions. The eclectic collection of plaster-cast noses features noses ranging from some of the most prominent citizens of the country to the very average individuals; there is also a symbolic “unknown nose” which represents the nose of the common man. If you've ever wondered why some people are obsessed with the shape of their noses, you should check this collection.
