Nils-Oscar palace

2018, Autoseum celebrated its 10th anniversary. This was noticed in a very special way. Nils Oscar Nilsson and his father-in-law Nils Oscar Nordström were honored by the opening of Nils-Oscar Palace. It is these two gentlemen who created the economic conditions for making Autoseum one of Europe’s foremost museums. In a separate showroom in the best Las Vegas style, there are unique vehicles, slot machines, roulette tables and everything else that belongs to this world’s perhaps most spectacular entertainment metropolis.

Kids’ Autoseum

The big news in 2016 was that the children got their own separate museum. Lots of exciting toys from both past and present. Free admission for children up to 12 years old, in company with parents who visit the museum.

Stefan Lill-Lövis exhibition

One of Swedish car sports major icons, Stefan “Lill-Lövis” Johansson, has a new separate exhibition.

This reflects his successful career, including almost 100 starts in Formula 1, Le Mans victory and much more. His go-cart, his first car (a FIAT) and not least a McLaren F1, trophies, overalls, helmets, and a rich image material make this something extraordinary.

Swedish motorsport history

This exhibition tells the story of Swedish Motorsport from the early 1900s to today. An extensive photo collection and race cars from different eras make this a really thrilling addition.

Model plane exhibition

A unique model plane exhibition – the only one of its kind in Sweden.

Frasses & Mariannes music museum

Frasse read about Thomas Alva Edison for the first time in 1964 and he was so captivated by the man often called America’s greatest inventor that he became an eager student of his work and a prolific collector of Edison phonographs. Frasse’s collection is now one of the world’s finest.

Frasse and his partner Marianne opened their museum in 1981 in the home they shared on Peder Mörck Street here in Simrishamn. Now Frasse could combine his job at Lundqvist’s Fish Shop with the job of curator of his own museum.

The collection had attracted international attention even before the museum opened as Frasse corresponded regularly with several museums all over the world and was frequently consulted by the Edison Museum in the USA.

Besides gramophones and phonographs, the collection contains many other musical machines, such as musical boxes and melodious barrel organs that Frasse and Marianne loved to play at outdoor events from time to time.

During the many years it was open, Frasse’s Music Museum attracted not just the general public but many dignitaries from all over the world, and visitors were always delighted and impressed by this unique collection. The museum was open until 2006. John Fransson, or “Frasse” as everyone called him, began collecting funnel gramophones in 1959 and he spent five busy years assembling the foundation of his impressive collection. He often came across artefacts as he drove around the rural areas of Österlen in his meat delivery van.

John Fransson was born on 24 November 1920 in the parish of Fågeltofta. He died on Christmas Eve 2009. His partner Marianne Nilsson died in 2012.

Their entire collection, now preserved for posterity in the Frasse’s and Marianne’s Music Museum Foundation, is here for you and all our other visitors to see and admire, and we hope you feel the same great respect for their legacy that we do.


Gösta Werner

Gösta Werners konstverk ”Globe” beställdes av Statens konstråd inför öppnandet av Göteborg – Landvetters flygplats 1977. Konstverket utfördes av Handarbetets Vänner i Stockholm i spinnakerväv. Den ursprungliga bärande stålställningen tillverkades av Gärsnäs AB. För placeringen av konstverket på Autoseum 2016 har konstruktionen rekonstruerats. Under åren 1977–2003, då konstverket var placerat på Landvetter, var det försett med en motor som fick globen att rotera. Konstverket är utlånat av Statens konstråd till Gösta Werner sällskapet i Simrishamn för visningen på Autoseum. (Henrik Orrje

Globen ”tillverkades” inför öppnandet av Göteborg – Landvetters flygplats 1977. Den gjordes av Gösta Werner i spinnakerväv och mätte 2,75 m i diameter uppspänd på ett stålskelett tillverkat vid Gärsnäs AB. Monteringen gjordes i samarbete med ”Handarbetets Vänner”. Den prydde Landvetters incheckningshall fram till omkring 2000 då den togs ned i samband med ombyggnad.

Utöver den geografiska bakgrunden innehåller den meteorologiska fenomen i form av väderfronter och vindbälten med anknytning till Göstas Werners bakgrund som sjökapten och meteorolog.

”Globens” installation på Landvetter uppmärksammades av SVT kombinerat med intervjuprogram kring Göstas erfarenheter från livet till havs. (Björn Hellroth 2016-02-16)
