Ikea Museum

Ikea was once a small mail order company in the forests of Småland, which grew to become one of the world’s largest furniture shops – find out how it all began at the Ikea Museum in Småland.

Located in what once was the world’s first Ikea store, the Ikea Museum opened in 2016. The museum features a main exhibition and a temporary exhibition, as well as restaurant and – of course – a museum shop with books, smaller furniture pieces, candy and sometimes even offering vintage Ikea products that you will not find anywhere else.
