Nordiska Museet (The Nordic Museum) opened its doors in 1873 and was founded by Artur Hazelius. Hazelius had a vision of creating a museum that preserved old items for future generations. Today, Nordiska Museet is Sweden’s largest cultural history museum and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. You’ll learn about the Nordic lifestyle and the traditions that have existed since the 16th century onwards.
