The Nordic Museum

The Nordic Museum

The life of people from the Nordic countries since 1523 is displayed in a beautiful renaissance building that resembles a castle – the Nordic Museum. Paying a visit to the Nordic Museum is the best way to get to know and experience Nordic culture and history, to so how people from these countries used to live, what they wore, what they ate, what traditions they had, and which has remained to this day. In downtown Stockholm, on Djurgården island, in the Nordic Museum, the everyday life of Swedes since the 16th century is at display.

The museum was founded by Artur Hazelius in 1873, and it was designed by Isak Gustaf Clason. Bricks, granite and concrete were used in construction. It was opened in 1907.
When you enter the museum, a magnificent hall will open before you, 126 meters long and 24 meters high. In the center there is a sculpture of King Gustav Vasa, mad of oak tree, and Carl Milles, the famous sculptor, designed it. In the museum, you may find luxurious jewelry, luxurious clothes behind the glass, furniture, various toys, kitchen utensils, and many other items from a given period. The collection with the items of the Sámi people is particularly special.
The size of the building exceeded the original one almost 3 times.
In 1891, the Swedish government allocated money for maintenance for the first time
