Nordic Museum (Nordiska Museet)

The Nordic Museum or Nordiska Museet  is dedicated to Swedish cultural heritage and ethnography ans was founded in the late 19th century by Artur Hazelius, a folklore expert and Swedish teacher. The massive building gives a comprehensive survey of everything Swedish from the 16th century onwards.

The present building, the design of Isak Gustaf Clason, was originally intended to be a national monument housing the material inheritance of the nation and was supposed to be three times its actual size. However, it was never constructed to the original specifications, and the downsized building was completed in 1907.

The architecture of the building is inspired by Dutch and Danish Renaissance style. The grand main hall is dominated by an enormous sculpture of King Gustav Vasa, the alleged founder of Sweden. The museum’s collections include vast amounts of articles like furniture, clothes, household objects and other objects spanning a 500 year period that illustrate Swedish life, culture, and traditions.

Practical Info

The Nordic Museum is located beyond the Djurgården bridge in Stockholm and to the right.  You can also get the museum via public transit on the T13 metro, stopping at the Karlaplan station.
