Nationalmuseum welcomed over 771,300 visitors in 2010. Around half of this number, 355,900, visited the main museum building on Blasieholmen, while the others visited our collections outside Stockholm: for instance at Gripsholm, Läckö and Drottningholm castles and Tessininstitutet in Paris.
Knowing our visitors
To get to know our audience and so enhance our offering and service, we conduct three visitor surveys annually. In the autumn, winter and spring, the majority of visitors are from Greater Stockholm and other parts of Sweden. In the summer, most visitors to Nationalmuseum are tourists, over half of them from abroad. The majority of tourists are from Europe, with Germany providing the largest contingent.
Nationalmuseum’s website receives over a million hits annually. Most online visitors are checking the site for information prior to visiting the museum in person. The education section of the site is popular with teachers. Teaching guides and other educational material designed to make learning fun are available to download. The website is important because not everyone has the opportunity to visit our collections in person, so it offers an experience in its own right.
