Nordic Museum (Nordiska Museet) Tours

Nordic Museum (Nordiska Museet)
The Nordic Museum (Nordiska Museet) is an institution dedicated to Swedish cultural heritage, ethnography, and folk art. Situated on the island of Djurgården in Stockholm, the museum’s collection includes textiles, clothes, dollhouses, and other objects spanning a 500-year period that illustrate Swedish life, culture, and traditions.
 
The Basics
Swedish teacher and folklore expert Artur Hazelius founded the Nordic Museum in the late 19th century. The vast collection gives a comprehensive survey of Sweden’s cultural history from the 16th century onwards. The massive building, the design of Isak Gustaf Clason, was originally intended to be a national monument housing the nation’s material inheritance. The grand main hall is dominated by an enormous sculpture of King Gustav Vasa, the founder of Sweden. 
 
The Nordic Museum is a stop on many Stockholm city tours, and is often combined with other attractions in Djurgården and the surrounding area. A Stockholm red bus hop-on hop-off ticket or a boat tour frequently includes the Nordic Museum along with other Stockholm sights such as Old Town, the Royal Palace, Gröna Lund Tivoli, the open-air museum and zoo Skansen, the maritime Vasa Museum, and more.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Children under 18 years old enjoy free admission to the museum. The on-site Children’s Playhouse charges an extra fee.
  • Free audio guides in 11 languages are available at the museum entrance.
  • The café offers freshly baked pastries and bread.
 
How to Get There
You can reach the Nordic Museum by buses 67, 69 and 76. If arriving by Tunnelbana, get off at the Karlaplan stop. Ferry service is to Allmänna Gränd from Slussen, and in the summer there is a ferry stop at Nybroplan.
 
When to Get There
The museum is open daily 10am to 5pm Thursday to Tuesday and until 6pm on Wednesday. In summer, when most travelers visit Stockholm, it is open from 9am to 8pm. If visiting Stockholm in the winter, a day at the Nordic Museum could provide a welcome respite from the bitter Scandinavian weather. Summertime takes most area residents out of doors, and a visit to the museum could easily be combined with other Djurgården sights in walking distance.
 
Special Exhibitions
The Nordic Museum has a rotating roster of special exhibitions on different time periods in Scandinavian life. Check the museum’s calendar for dates of exhibitions focusing on Sweden in the 1950s, Swedish holiday traditions, Sami (Sweden’s native population) life, and other special topics.
Address: Djurgårdsvägen 6-16, Stockholm 115 21, Sweden
