Accessible exhibitions

We are working actively to make our exhibitions accessible. Our ambition is to make exhibitions that are accessible to everyone who wishes to visit us. It should be possible for everyone to move around in the museum and absorb all the information in the exhibition. Before a new exhibition opens, we test the texts, media technology and exhibition environment in their entirety together with visitors, to ensure that the exhibition works for the intended target groups.

Accessibility of the exhibition Seven Lives 

  • The Seven Lives exhibition has texts in Swedish and English. 
  • Some parts of the exhibition may be perceived to be dark – this is because some exhibits need to be protected. 
  • The exhibition includes sound.
