In the 1890s a new plant was built in which a room was dedicated to board meetings and customer receptions. The room was completed in 1903. From 1930 it housed the company’s museum. In 1976 the entire woodwork and collections were moved to the National Museum of Science and Technlogy, Stockholm.

The two-storey room is decorated with mahogany panels and silk fabric on the walls. The pillars in the rails have carved phone bells and mouthpieces. The richly decorated stucco has cupids with handsets. All of the room is devoted to the company’s successful products. In the center of the room, a grand showcase from the Stockholm exhibition in 1897 dominated the visitor’s impression. It had a built-in electric carillion mechanism.

When the company moved the headquarters, the room became less relevant. It was converted into a company museum in order to educate staff about the company’s history. In the 1940’s the museum was transferred to the Stockholm City Museum but remained on the old factory site. In 1976 it was moved to the Telecommunications museum in Stockholm, which recently opened next to the National Museum of Science and Techology. The room is still intact but rarely opens to visitors.

  • Att det inte var tillåtet att besöka L M Ericssons minnesrum och samlingar framgår ingenstans i presentationstexten om rummet. Frågan är hur man kan besöka och se denna del vid nästa besök!?
