The crown jewel of Sweden’s art museums is the iconic Nationalmuseumin the capital of Stockholm. Since its establishment in 1866, it has served as a premier setting for masterworks in painting, sculpture, art and design dating from the 1500s to the 1900s.
The Röhsska Museum in Gothenburg
IKEA Museum in Älmhult
Ingvar Kamprad’s idea of making good design affordable for many people grew from being a small mail order company in the forests of Småland to the global phenomenon that is IKEA. Few furniture companies are popular enough to have their own dedicated museum.
