The Brigade Museum (opens 2013)
Sweden’s Infantry Brigade Museum shows the development of the brigade system, along with its component parts, infantry, artillery and other support functions.
The Cold War, the period from the conclusion of peace in 1945 to the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, represents a distinctive era in world history. The Second World War thus in a way continued with the waging of a new type of warfare in which two blocs, each led by a superpower, stood face to face, with the non-aligned country of Sweden between them.
The development of the modern infantry brigade system took place during this period and this forms the main focus for the displays in the museum.
The museum work together with the Värmland Folklore Society, who provides information about a number of smaller fortifications that were built during the period of national emergency 1940-41.
