We are currently creating a new website for the Swedish National Museums 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

Departing from its abundant collections and their rich provenance, the museum strives to offer knowledge and perspectives for reflection on what it means to be human. By providing interpretations of specific, universal questions, the museum wishes to create receptivity towards the unknown.

The Museum collections contains objects from China, Corea, South- and Southeast Asia, The Pacific, the Americas and Africa. A total of ca 220 000 objects.
