Ebba’s House

Ebba's House is a fascinating museum, which stands as a testament to the past, preserving a slice of history and offering visitors a captivating journey into the lives of Malmö's residents from a bygone era. The house, originally built in the 18th century, was owned by the Olsson family. Ebba and her mother were skilled lace and trimmings makers who worked from home. After her mother's passing, Ebba continued to live alone in the house. In 1984, due to her age, Ebba had to relocate, and she generously donated her home to the Malmö Museum. Following her passing in 1989, the museum acquired her old furniture and restored the house to its original state. In 1991, Ebba's House opened its doors as a local history museum, allowing visitors to step back in time and appreciate the rich cultural heritage of Malmö.
