The Nordic Watercolour Museum is open all year round and produces six to eight exhibitions a year. Located among the coastal landscape of Tjörn island, West Sweden, the museum welcomes visitors from the local community and around the world. Offering a comprehensive programme, we create experiences all year round and help to create a rich cultural scene for locals and visitors alike.
