Röhss Museum

The Röhsska Museum (Swedish: Röhsska museet för konsthantverk och design, earlier named Röhsska konstslöjdsmuseet) in Gothenburg, Sweden, is a museum focused on design and applied arts. It was created through donations from Wilhelm and August Röhss and opened to the public in 1916; it has since expanded. The museum has a fine collection of Chinese art and craft and a permanent exhibition of Swedish design stretching from the early 20th century until the present day. The Kaffe Fassett exhibition is one of the most successful in recent years.

As of 2007 the new head of Röhsska is Ted Hesselbom who has increased the museum's focus towards fashion and fashion history.

The Röhsska Museum building was designed by the national romantic architect Carl Westman.
