Welcome to Lekoseum

Welcome to Lekoseum’s official website. Lekoseum is a toy museum that has something to offer children and adults alike. Join us on a journey through Swedish toy history. See how colour and form has been used to stimulate children’s play and imagination. At Lekoseum there is also room to play with today’s toys and games. On this page we have tried to compile as much information as possible in English, for our non-Swedish speaking friends. If you wish to have more information than what is on this page, we suggest you translate the entire website at google translate (by entering www.lekoseum.se at the google page).

About Lekoseum

Lekoseum is a toy museum with cafe, play-areas and shop. The museum first opened in 1984 in connection with BRIO AB celebrating 100 years as a company, the museum was then to be called BRIO Lekoseum.

In the late summer of 2014 Lekoseum became an independent foundation. The foundation’s board of directors now include representatives from Osby’s Municipality, the company BRIO AB, BRIO veteran fund and the family Ivarsson. One of the foundation’s tasks is to nurture Osby’s cultural heritage, which is part of Swedish toy manufacturing as a whole. From being merely BRIO’s official museum, we are now a museum showcasing toy and play development from the entire county. Our primary mission is to nurture children’s play and toy history regardless of age and nationality. One of our new ambitions is to give space in the museum for the employees and local suppliers who manufactured BRIO products during the 1900s.

At Lekoseum we display above all, toys that were manufactured locally by many different subcontractors and BRIO’s own factories in Osby and Killeberg. Children’s play has, for more than a century formed the basis on which companies in Osby built their business. As a result there was once more than  twenty companies in Osby devoted to toy manufacturing, which provided a livelihood for the men and women within the area.

The company founder Ivar Bengtson started the company’s first store in Osby in 1914. Nowadays Lekoseum runs a shop located on the same spot, right across from the museum.
