The Nordiska Museet is home to Sweden’s culture and heritage. Dating from the 1600 until present day, there are approx one and half million exhibits. From costume and jewellery to homes and interiors, plus modern day Swedish inventions. The museum is also home to a life size, exact replica of a 1940’s Swedish apartment and monumental oak statue of Gustav Vasa. It has an image collection of 6 million photographs and 250,000 books, journals, papers, brochures and magazines.


There is a large children’s play area, aptly named “The Children’s Play House“. Admission is 20sek. We think it’s a bit cheeky since Nordiska Museet is part of the listing of museums which are free throughout Stockholm. But, it’s 20sek!? Not going to break the bank.


Every Sunday they host family activities and events specifically for those under 12. It’s a great way for kids to remain in touch with the past and looking ahead to the future.
