proceed their dialog to find a longterm agreement for the running of the Porcelain museum.
The Gustavsberg Porcelain Museum is a ceramic treasure trove. The permanent exhibition presents the history
of china in an international context and the story of the factory and the society of which it was part.
The temporary exhibitions present important artistic influences and current events.
