Welcome Back to The National Museums of World Culture

The world is temporarily closed but you do not have to travel far to catch a glimpse of it. On June 3rd, we will reopen the museum doors with safety precautions.

WHAT WE DO TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF INFECTION

- Markers helping you maintaining the distance

Based on the recommendations of The Public Health Agency of Sweden, we make sure to monitor the attendance in the museums. Please look for markers indicating where to stand and maintain a minimum distance of two meters from those outside your party.

- Customizations
The exhibitions have been adapted to the current situation. For example, we do not provide audio guides.

- Cash-free
We do not accept cash at the museums. You can pay by credit card as well as with Swish in some places.

- Enhanced cleaning
Cleaning will be enhanced throughout the museum, including increased frequency of disinfecting high-traffic surfaces.
