The Glass Factory

During the 60s and 70s, there was a hive of activity and creativity in Boda. It was here that Boda Smide, Boda Trä and Boda Nova started up. Above all, legends such as Erik Höglund, Signe Persson-Melin, Monica Backström, Rolf Sinnermark and Kjell Engman were active here. In 2009, the Municipality of Emmaboda bought the extensive glass collections from Boda, Kosta and Åfors Glassworks and the museum opened its doors in 2011.
