Nordiska museet, Sweden. - Sweden's largest museum of cultural history

Nordiska museet has exhibitions about life and work, trends and traditions, in Sweden from the 16th century to today. Our collections include clothes and fashion, textiles, furniture and interiors, jewellery, photography, folk art, glass and china. The Museum was founded in 1873 by Artur Hazelius. 

The Nordiska museet archives contain documents from societies, companies and private individuals, as well as letters, diaries, memoirs and other accounts and anecdotes – covering more than 4,500 metres of shelf space in all.

The museum’s image collections comprise approximately seven million photographs, while the library holds more than 250,000 books and journals, as well as brochures, maps and product catalogues.

Only a fraction of the collections is displayed in the exhibitions, but many items can be accessed by other means. New media and expert staff are helping to open up the museum for the visitors of today. Four key areas of knowledge feature particularly prominently: clothing and fashion, home and living, customs and practices and the cultivation of natural resources are the main fields in which the museum specialises.

The library on the ground floor is the museum’s meeting place for cultural history. Visitors can come here and take a closer look at the collections in beautiful and peaceful surroundings. This is where you will find an office for dealing with all kinds of questions, and where you can also study archived material and search the databases for particular exhibition themes and objects.

The collection also includes all the buildings on the farm Julita in Södermanland, Svindersvik in Nacka, Tyresö castle and Härkeberga chaplain farm outside Enköping.

Cultura e conhecimento são ingredientes essenciais para a sociedade.

Vamos compartilhar.
