In 2019 Husqvarna Museum has had a record number of visitors. As many as 36 625 persons visited our exhibitions and took part of the fantastic history of Husqvarna. In other words, we now exceed our old record, from 2015, with more than 3000 visitors. For the fifth consecutive year we have reached more than 30 000 visitors. We are both proud and grateful for all attention the museum has been shown. Welcome back!
