The Nordics' one and only plastics museum
Welcome to Plastens Hus in Perstorp
Plastens Hus takes you on a journey through the exciting history of plastics, past memorable products that can make you laugh and wonder, into our time where plastic is an important component in high technology, medicine and IT. It’s no surprise that Plastens Hus is located in Perstorp – it was here that Scandinavia’s first plastic material was produced. The building is also home to a gift shop and a tourist office.

In our shop, you’ll find design products and gifts with a local connection. We also stock the plastic Hinza shopping bag, whose predecessor was designed by the Perstorp AB company in 1957.
Our premises also house the Perstorp tourist office. Here, we have official tourist information and we are happy to help you with directions, guidance and tips on things to see and do.
We arrange guided tours through the plastics exhibition in the old factory premises. We take you through the factory’s history and take a closer look at the interesting industrial development that took place here. We’ve got a few amusing anecdotes to share with you and we finish up in the present, where plastic has an important role to play as a versatile material.
