The music ranges from minimalistic soundscapes to explosive multilayered free improvisation. The four musicians each bring their individual voices to create a strong, collective musical statement.

Welcome to Art Cabin Alma!

In the Alma art cabin children can draw, colour or paint on stones. The art cabin will open on Thursday, 5th May 2022 and is open during the summer season every day between 11 and 17 (with the exception of Midsummer weekend when both the Museum and restaurant are closed, Fri-Sun 24th-26th June). 

You can take your finished drawings home or you can hang them one the colourful magnetic boards on the walls. You can also take the painted stones home to remember your visit by or you can leave them in the art cabin for others to admire. 

The Alma art cabin is named after Alma who once worked at the manor. The cottage was her home and Alma, among other things, cared for the manor chickens.
