Few Swedish comedians have become as popular as Fridolf Rhudin from Munkfors. Visiting the museum will give you an insight of his life and career.
In a preserved environment at the old mill park in Munkfors you can visit the comedian and actor Fridolf Rhudin's (1895-1935) museum. The exhibition is about his life and career.
Owe "Clapson" Carlsson, guide and owner, imitates Fridolf Rhudin perfectly. He tells stories, plays guitar and sings.
One room is dedicated to "Olle in Skratthult" (Hjalmar Pettersson1886-1960), also from Munkfors, who became Swedens-America's foremost entertainer.
Another big artist of today is Bosse Parnevik, who of course also is represented in the museum.
