The museum is open

From June 15 the Swedish History Museum is open. We follow the recommendations of the Public Health Agency of Sweden in connection with COVID-19. This means we have adapted the museum and the activities according to prevailing circumstances.

Get close to history – with social distancing

We have a large building with many fantastic exhibitions and two beautiful courtyards. You can easily get close to all our historical stories and yet maintain distance to other visitors.

Not too many people in the museum at the same time

The number of visitors is limited, to ensure that all keep distance.

Rosengården – an oasis in the middle of town

Eat and drink something tasty in the museum’s restaurant Rosengården, which also has outdoor seating. The restaurant is open Tuesday–Sunday 11 am to 3 pm. Today’s special Tuesday–Friday. Also sandwiches, pies and cookies.

Activities for all ages

Bring your own lunch and visit our large, green courtyard. Borrow games at the information desk or test your skills in our prehistory quiz.

Social distancing in the museum

There are distance markings throughout the museum, and screens between visitors and staff at the information desk and at the pay desk in the restaurant.

Increased cleaning frequency

Exposed surfaces, such as handles and railings, are regularly cleaned. Hand disinfectant can be found in various locations in the museum and of course in our restrooms.

Pay by card, Swish or cash

We encourage our visitors to pay by card or via Swish, but also accept cash.
