Museum Mission: Stigbergets borgarrum/Anna Lindhagens museum
On this beautiful street,
With this beautiful view,
is Stigbergets borgarrum, also known as Anna Lindhagens museum, found.
She fought for women's rights, was inspecting living conditions of children in orphanages and was called "The protecting angel of Fjällgatan" by the author Per-Anders Fogelström (who wrote the famous thriology about Stockholm) and, just like Anna, protected many houses from the 1900's against destruction. Her family consisted of social democrats and her father was amongst the politicians that planned for a change in the city with big roads like Karlavägen (the 1866 reformation, but let me get back on the proper number, I will check it up next week).
A big "clearup" was made in the area
between 1982-1983. At that time, these houses still had loos outdoors. Fortunately, many buildings from the 1900's remained intact. Anna herself actually lived in this apartment, now used to show what it could look like at the time, during the six last years of her life. This is also where the TV-series "Fröken Frimans krig" was recorded in part (and a new season is coming up next winter!).
The unusual thing about this museum is that it can be rented for meetings or calm dinners (but own food has to be brought). And on March 8th, 2016, the house will finally get a blue culture sign - seen here and there on prominent and historical buildings in town - so you are welcome to Fjällgatan 34 at 4 p.m.!
