The Museum of Emigration in Kisa was opened in 1979. The collections were initiated by the late librarian, Curt von Wachenfeldt and Kurt Rodin and they include letters, photos and other memorabilia from the early emigration. Above is a choice of pictures from a museum that takes you back to the middle of the 19th century when the early emigration from Kinda to North America started. Here you will find pictures and letters telling of remarkable personal destinies and brave men and women hoping to fullfil their dreams and find a better life for themselves. In one of the booths you´ll for example meet Anna Nysten, survivor of the Titanic disaster. During the summer 2019 the museum has made a huge "facelift" and has been updated with a new approach and a storyline that will take you through the history with faces, letters, audio and more. Welcome!
