Welcome back to Nationalmuseum

Nationalmuseum is open to visitors again, under controlled conditions. In order so that this will be possible, we have reviewed the premises and taken measures to comply with the Public Health Agency of Sweden’s recommendations for social distancing. Stay at home – even if you only feel a little sick. Together we help each other to minimize the risk of the spread of infection.

What has Nationalmuseum done?

To make it easier to maintain social distancing:

  • We have limited the number of visitors who are allowed to be present on our premises at the same time.
  • We have closed off certain areas where there is a risk of it becoming crowded, or where there are many contact surfaces. This applies to the children's Villa Curiosa and the Old Library, and a few other places.
  • We strongly encourage visitors to move in the same direction inside the halls – this is in order to reduce the risk of congestion in the doorposts.
  • We will not be allowing larger groups inside the museum galleries, due to that this cause congestion.
  • We have placed markings on the floor, to make it easier to keep a distance when queuing.
  • We encourage all visitors to leave the lifts to those who need them most.
  • The lockers on the lower ground floor can be used, however some have been placed out of services so that it is possible to maintain social distancing. Please note that we do not have the possibility to accept larger pieces of luggage.

For good hand hygiene:

  • At the information and sales desks, we have installed droplet protection and placed hand sanitiser out for our visitors to use.
  • There are WCs on the lower ground floor and on the Middle and Top floors where you can wash your hands with soap and water.

To avoid unnecessary contact surfaces:

  • All doors that can be propped open will be propped open.
  • We will not be renting out/lending any audio guides – instead you can download the Nationalmuseum visitor guide app on your own smartphone.
  • It is possible to borrow a baby stroller/pram. We have introduced a procedure for wiping after usage.
  • We do not have any baby carriers to lend.

For even more thorough cleaning:

  • We have introduced extra cleaning procedures.
  • We have put procedures in place for disinfection of contact surfaces.

Venues for eating and drinking

  • The restaurant is open, and so that congestion does not arise the number of seats has been reduced.
  • The “Picnic Area,” the packed-lunch eating room on the lower ground floor, is closed - however it is possible to eat a packed lunch in the museum park.

Adaptation of our offerings

  • All lectures, tours, studio activities and booked group tours are cancelled until further notice.
  • We have made a number of adjustments to the exhibition programme. The Pär Engsheden and Sara Danius exhibition is extended and runs until 17 February 2021. The exhibition about Anders Zorn has been postponed, and is now planned to open in February 2021. Arcadia – a paradise lost opens 17 September.
