Exhibitions

Paris in the North

Timeless elegance, exquisite craftsmanship and tailor-made dreams. On 17 September opens a fashion exhibition that transports you to the golden age of haute couture and the northernmost outpost of Paris fashion – the French Couture Atelier at the NK department store in Stockholm.

The Arctic – While the Ice Is Melting

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.

British – Ever so Nordic

This exhibiton is about Nordic fashion and lifestyle with influences from Britain. 

Traditions

Celebrations and festivals throughout life – why, when and how we observe traditions. 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?

Sápmi

Sápmi  is an exhibition about Sami life in Sweden. It’s a story of possibilities and difficulties, power and resistance, rights and unrighteousness. 

Swedish Folk Art

Welcome to the world of folk art, as it blossomed in Sweden during the 18th and 19th centuries! The exhibition focuses on the driving forces and sources of inspiration: the proportions and shape of the human body, nature, the interior decorations of parish churches and bible stories, noble coats of arms and royal monograms.

Strindberg

August Strindberg is one of Sweden’s best-known authors, both nationally and internationally. In addition to works such as The Red Room, Natives of Hemsö, Master Olof, The Father and Miss Julie, From an Occult Diary occupies a special place in his works.

Jewellery

The exhibition’s 1,000 pieces of jewellery are divided into different sections. In some cases they are on display because we know about the people who wore them, in others because they represent a period, a historical epoch, a fashion, a function or a material.

Table Settings

Interiors featuring table settings from the 16th century to circa 1950: tables for banquets, coffee and tea parties, and tables for aperitifs and aquavit – all are on display in this exhibition.
