The dramatic reorganization of Sweden's national defense opened up a new network of museums, "Sweden's military heritage", designed to show the different aspects of our military history.

Sweden has not participated in any war since 1814. The will to defend itself has always been very strong. Security and defense were central to social life in Sweden. The new Swedish artillery museum is located in Kristianstad.

All cannons, howitzers, mortars and grenade launchers used in the Swedish army from the end of the 17th century are found here together with other artillery equipment such as towing vehicles, anchors, plates, radar, fire control equipment, ammunition and others. shown.

The museum has an overall Swedish responsibility to maintain the artillery tradition. The country of manufacture is mainly Sweden (Bofors, Ericsson and Hägglund and others) but also Germany (Krupp and Rheinmetall) from around 1880 to 1920.

The museum is located directly south of Kristianstad (in Skåne, southern Sweden) at the former training site for Wendes Artillery Regiment, A 3. An hour's drive northeast of Malmö. (See map). Near the museum is the old Torsebro gunpowder factory and the old fortress Kristianstad with an armed bastion and the "Regional Museum". The museum is also working with a "re-enactment" group that displays weapons in uniforms that are typical of the period.
