A unique place that invites you as a visitor to contemporary painting, sculpture, photography, textiles and ceramics from our district Sjuhäradsbygden.

In parallel with borrowed exhibitions, the Wärenstams Museum always shows parts of its art collection of contemporary art with works by people who were born in, live or work in Sjuhärad.

This unique collection is funded by the Tore G Wärenstam Foundation. Tore G Wärenstam (1908–1980) was a leading figure in the Swedish press for over 40 years. Editor-in-chief, CEO and significant owner of Borås Tidning. He laid the foundation for the foundation that bears his name and which today, in addition to media ownership, is a significant cultural actor for all art forms in Sjuhärad.
