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.

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. 42x30x10 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.
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. For safety reasons belongings must not be stored around or in prams parked outside the children’s exhibition. Unattended prams or pushchairs may be taken care of by the staff.
- 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.
There are changing tables in the handicap toilets on each floor.
