Press release from Ministry of Culture

Introduction of free admission to state museums

Published Updated

The Government proposes in the Budget Bill that SEK 80 million be set aside for the introduction of free admission to certain state museums. The proposal is based on an agreement between the Government and the Left Party.

"The treasures held at museums belong to us all, the collections are there for us. This is why it is self-evident that we also ensure that everyone has the opportunity to access what we own together. Free admission will also make it easier for new groups to visit the museums," says Minister for Culture and Democracy Alice Bah Kuhnke.

The reform introducing free admission to state museums that was implemented in 2005 and 2006 enabled many more groups in society to have access to our shared cultural heritage.

Free admission will apply at the following state museums:

  • The Army Museum
  • The Museum of Ethnography
  • The Swedish Air Force Museum (Flygvapenmuseum) in Linköping
  • The Hallwyl Museum
  • The Swedish History Museum
  • The Royal Coin Cabinet
  • The Royal Armoury
  • The Naval Museum in Karlskrona
  • The Museum of Mediterranean and Near Eastern Antiquities (Medelhavsmuseet)
  • Moderna Museet in Stockholm and Malmö
  • Nationalmuseum
  • The Swedish Museum of Natural History
  • The Maritime Museum
  • Skokloster Castle
  • The Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design (ArkDes)
  • The Museum of World Culture in Gothenburg
  • The Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities (Östasiatiska museet)
