NORDIC MUSEUM
See this year’s big exhibition “Nordic light” in the main hall of the museum. The exhibition is about how it is to live in a part of the world that has limited daylight during the winter and almost endless daylight during the summer? Only a few per cent of the Earth’s population live in these kinds of light conditions. Little more than 100 years ago, darkness after sunset with no moon was a reality for most people – light was special. Imagine having ten tallow candles to get by on for a whole year. Or the opportunities that street lighting involved for life after sunset. There are also 17 other exhibitions at the museum this summer with focus on folk art, home decor, clothing and fashion for example
If you are visiting the museum with the children there is also a playhouse, the children’s audio guide and the Light Travel, which is the children’s own way through the exhibition Nordic Light.
