Nordiska Museet - inside Nordiska museet Stockholm

Nordiska Museet is Sweden’s largest museum of cultural history. It is home to over 1.5 million exhibits, including exclusive items and everyday objects, all with their own unique history.

The collections, which are managed by the Nordiska Museet Foundation, reflect life in Sweden from the 16th century to the present day.

The museum has been referred to as a home for memories, but today it is a place where memories and innovations exist side by side.

Permanent collections: the collection contains over 1.5 million objects. The 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 total. The image collections comprise approximately 6 million photographs. The library holds more than 250,000 books and journals, as well as brochures, maps and product catalogues. The collection also includes all the buildings of the Julita manor in Sörmland, the Svindersvik country residence in Nacka, Tyresö Castle, and the Härkeberga chalaincy in Enköping.
