Nordic lifestyle since 1523

Nordiska museet is Sweden’s largest museum of cultural history. An everyday palace, and a place of stories about the life and people of the Nordic region – yesterday, today and tomorrow. Discover clothes and fashion, textiles and jewellery, homes and furniture, photography, toys, folk art, glass and porcelain. There is also an exhibition about the only indigenous people in Sweden, the Sami.

The Arctic – While the Ice Is Melting

Nordiska museet’s new major exhibition, The Arctic – While the Ice Is Melting, allows visitors to meet people from some of the world's coldest places, where the environment and living conditions are changing at a rapid pace.


Inspired by frozen moments, creatures from Nordic folklore, and frost flowers, designer Martin Bergström has created a sculptural collection from recycled textiles. The exhibition Crystallofolia displays nine creations from the collection of the same name, along with photographs by Carl Bengtsson.
