Summary/Abstract: This article uses ethnographic methods to analyze how cultural and economic factors impact the way heritage is understood, preserved and developed at Kulturen and Fredriksdal, two of the oldest museums of cultural history museums in Sweden. Some questions offered for discussion will include: How does leadership understand and conceptualize cultural heritage? Whose cultural heritage count the most when related to financial circumstances and forms of ownership? Which priorities are made in the day to day work with collections, exhibitions and programming? Whose heritage is given priority in core exhibitions and whose heritage is prepared for a temporary show?
