Arts & Museums
The Halland Museum of Cultural History or Hallands kulturhistoriska museum is a part of the Varberg fortress, about 75 kilometers (47 miles) from Downtown Gothenburg. The museum chronicles the story of Halland and is home to the fabled Bocksten Man, a fourteenth century corpse who was probably murdered and hidden in a bog of Varberg for several hundred years before he was found. As such, the Bocksten Man is Europe's most well-preserved body of that era. Apart from that, the museum also houses the Konstnärskolonin Varbergsskolan collection of beautiful artwork by artists such as Karl Nordström and Rickard Bergh. Open all week, the museum also offers fun and educational activities for school-aged children; check the website for more details.
