It is important that museums, which are vital societal functions, can safely open for visitors once again. The pandemic has shown us just how great a role culture plays in our lives; many people have found it difficult while it has not been possible to visit the theatre, concerts, the cinema and dance performances. It is now possible to visit us in a safe and secure manner. Here at Nationalmuseum, we have been preparing to reopen for a long time and we are delighted to be able to open the exhibition on Zorn at Nationalmuseum and the Gustavsberg Porcelain Museum, including the Lisa Larson exhibition, says Susanna Pettersson, Director General of Nationalmuseum.
Those wishing to attend the Zorn exhibition from 6 April onwards will need to pre-book their ticket for a specific date and time. The pre-booking requirement also applies to children and others entitled to free admission. The first tickets will be released on 23 March and then every two weeks via the museum website. Tickets for the Gustavsberg Porcelain Museum can be purchased online in advance or on arrival at the museum. The museum is open FridaySunday until May, meaning that in practice that it will not be opening until 9 April.
Public lecture programmes and guided tours remain cancelled until further notice. The museum continues to offer an abundant digital programme of lectures, courses and online tours.
