SWEDEN IN THE SHADOW OF THE COLD WAR

Join us on a journey through time from 1945-1991 where you can feel, listen, read and see how the Cold War affected Sweden. What happened around the world during the Cold War and how did it affect Sweden?

The journey begins with the end of WWII and long-awaited peace in 1945, in a Germany defeated and in ruins. You will be transported back in time and experience how people lived, how politics affected daily life and how it felt to live during the Cold War.

The Swedish brigades had their ”Golden Age” during this period, with new armoured vehicles and weapon systems. At Brigadmuseum you will discover what a brigade is and how the Swedish Armed Forces has developed over the years.
