The Nordic Museum has exhibitions about life and work, trends and traditions, in Sweden from the 16th century to today. Our collections include clothes and fashion, textiles, furniture and interiors, jewelry, photography, folk art, glass and china. The Museum was founded in 1873 by Artur Hazelius. The Nordic Museum archives contain documents from societies, companies and private individuals, as well as letters, diaries, memoirs and other accounts and anecdotes – covering more than 4,500 meters of shelf space in all. The museum’s image collections comprise approximately six million photographs, while the library holds more than 250,000 books and journals, as well as brochures, maps and product catalogues. New media and expert staff are helping to open up the museum for the visitors of today. Four key areas of knowledge feature particularly prominently: clothing and fashion, home and living, customs and practices and the cultivation of natural resources are the main fields in which the museum specializes.
