Welcome to Museihuset -
the world of toys, model cars, model trains and classic boats

Museihuset is a museum located in the Östergötland area of Sweden close to the city of Linköping. Our ambition is to offer a unique experience mainly in four areas

  • classic boats
  • toy/model cars
  • toy/model trains
  • popular children's contemporary toys

The museum in its current form celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2012, but the collections actually have an even older history.

The toy cars are parts of a collection of more than 10.000. The collection is a result of passionate work for more than 60 years and is considered unique of its kind. The collection also includes model trains of a larger, more impressive scale than usual.

The classic boat exhibition collects some of the most notable boats from earlier days. It is a composition of, mainly wooden, boats from canoes up to exclusive luxurious yachts former owned by millionaires.

Most of the contents on this website are unfortunately only available in Swedish. However, we are constantly working on expanding our site for international visitors.

We are looking forward to taking care of you in our facilities, which also include a café and a souvenir shop. Please don't hesitate to contact us.
