Information in English

Our new website is under construction. The English version will be available shortly, we apologize for the inconvenience.

We are currently creating a new website for the Museum of World Culture. Our ambition is to give you, the user, a richer experience, and to give more people in our organization the opportunity to use the web as a tool. We are also aiming for a higher degree of integration with various social media.

About the museum

The museum wants to be an arena for discussion and reflection in which many and different voices will be heard, where the controversial and conflict-filled topics can be addressed, as well as a place where people can feel at home across borders.

Admission fee 40 SEK

From the new year we introduce entrance fee in the form of an annual pass for 40 SEK. Admission is free for everyone up to the age of 19. Come and see programs, have a cup of tea, meet, or surf the Web wirelessly.

With many new exhibitions, lots of programs, 600 school programs and 250 conference events in a year, the museum reaches a young, wide audience.

In order to develop our activity further we are now taking an entrance fee of SEK 40 for a season ticket. It is still free for anyone to go to the restaurant, cafe and shop.

Major touring exhibitions with admission-fee
The museum will now establish itself as a tour-stop for large international exhibitions. For these, visitors will have to pay extra admission.

Free programs

Live concerts, spoken-word, Community Nights, seminars - in the museum's great stairs you can experience multiple programs without paying admission. Welcome!
