What's on

Guided introduction every day

A free 30 minute introduction to the Nordic museum – every day at 11 am and 2 pm. Starting point by the Gustav Vasa statue. 


Why do the Swedes eat "semlor" (cream buns with marzipan)? How did people prepare for Christmas in earlier times? What are the origins of the Midsummer pole?

Homes and interiors

Homes and Interiors spans nearly half a millennium of Swedish furniture and interior design. Where did the influences come from? How have crafts developed over the years?

A Taste of Hops is an exhibition about home-brewing past and present.
