Accessibility

We want Nationalmuseum to be open to everyone, and we are always working to improve our accessibility. If you have any questions or suggestions, we would be happy to hear from you.

Entrance

The entrance is at the front of the museum, facing the quay.

To the right of the steps there is a lift from the street level up to the entrance. The lift can accommodate wheelchairs, mobility scooters, prams and strollers.

There is a handicap parking spot to the right of the entrance steps, next to the lift.

There is limited parking in the vicinity. Please visit the website Stockholm Parkering for more current information.

Admittance to the permanent collections is free to all, while an entrance fee is charged for some of the temporary exhibitions. Accompanying persons and personal assistants have free admittance to these as well.

Dogs

Guide dogs and assistance dogs are welcome.

Lifts

Lifts that can accommodate wheelchairs and mobility scooters service every floor. The lifts have automatic doors.

Doors

All doors in the museum are either propped open or fitted with automatic door openers.

Map of the museum

In the entrance hall, you will find a folder with maps of the different floors of the museum. The same maps can also be found on large digital screens in the entrance hall. There is a tactile map in the lobby, to the right just after the steps.

Bags, storage, wardrobe

  • You are allowed to bring smaller bags (max. 30x21x10 cm) into the exhibitions.
  • You may not bring larger bags, backpacks and umbrellas; these must be placed in a locker. On the bottom floor, there are lockers where you can put your jacket, bag and backpack.
  • Please note that there is no room for larger items, such as cabin luggage or suitcases and large umbrellas.
  • The lockers are 40 cm deep and 38 cm wide. Most of the lockers are 36.5 cm high, with a small number that are 47 cm in height.
  • There is a temporary, manned wardrobe on the bottom floor.

Wheelchairs and wheeled walking frames

We will be happy to lend you a wheeled walking frame or wheelchair to make your visit easier. Please ask one of our staff on the ground floor.

Prams and pushchairs

You can walk around the museum with a pram or pushchair. If you do not want to bring it into the exhibitions, there is a space to park it outside the children’s exhibition at the entrance level. There is a museum host to give you instructions on where to park. Please note that this space is primarily intended for those visiting the children’s exhibition. If you want to visit the children’s exhibition with small children, there are pushchairs and baby carriers that you can borrow upon presentation of ID. We ask that you do not bring prams and pushchairs that have been used outside into the exhibitions, as they bring in dirt.

Toilets

  • There are plenty of toilets on the bottom floor.
  • There are handicap toilets on every floor.
  • On the top floor: inside the temporary exhibition.
  • On the middle floor: from the lift, turn right into The Timeline. The toilet is found just after the purple room.
  • On the entrance floor: there is one toilet by the restaurant and one by the studios.
  • On the bottom floor: from the lift, turn left and find the toilet straight ahead. There is also a toilet by the packed lunch room. You reach it by taking the lift from the entrance level which is found next to the studios.

Changing rooms

There are changing tables in the handicap toilets on each floor.

Did you forget nappies or any other changing supplies? Ask one of our museum hosts, who can help you get what you need.

There are portable hearing loops that you can borrow for guided tours.

For group tours, we ask that you inform us when booking if anyone in the group requires a hearing loop.
