Nordic Museum Tourist Attraction

Nordic Museum

Native: Nordiska museet

Nordic Museum is dedicated to the centuries-long culture of the Scandinavian countries from 1520 to the present day. The Museum is indebted to Arthur Hazelius for its appearance. He wished to retain the history of the country and evoke the sense of pride of future generations for their homeland. In 2007, the Museum celebrated its centenary.

The building, which houses the Museum, is remarkable. It's like a real Renaissance castle with its carved towers, spires and bas-reliefs. The building was built by the architect Isak Gustav Clason (1856-1930) till 1907. The sample was taken of the Danish castle Frederiksborg.

Once inside, each visitor instantly gets into a huge hall with the length of 126,5 m and the height of 24 m. The great giant in the medieval clothing sits in the center of the hall on the throne under the Gothic arches. It is a statue of Gustav I Vasa, partially cut from the oak, which he had planted himself.

The Museum exposition includes household items from kitchenware to shoes. It is dedicated to the history of Swedish folk costumes, recreated scenes of everyday life and holidays. Here you can see even the first pieces of IKEA furniture. There is a large exhibition of instruments of the Swedish furniture craftsmen, and items for the nomadic Saami in the basement of the Museum.

The rich collection of objects from different eras can seriously captivate you with the history of traditions of the Scandinavian people. The size of the Museum is quite big, so it is worth going there if you have two or three hours of free time.
