From the very start in 1924, we have looked to the future and shown how an inquisitive nature, creativity and boundary-transcending collaboration can help us to resolve many of the seemingly impossible challenges that we face. Now, just as 100 years ago, we find ourselves in a period of great upheaval with major challenges. It is our ambition to inspire people to become engaged not only in their own but also in our shared future. Today, we are a museum that is open and accessible, across several sites, and we are engaged in work and activities where combinations of technology, art, research and innovation provide perspectives that make our complex world easier to understand, and that we hope will provide insight and a desire to take action.
More than just a museum
The National Museum of Science and Technology has evolved to become something much more than just a museum. We are a premises of 12,000 m2 packed with experiences, located in Royal Djurgården, in the National City Park in the heart of Stockholm. We are a mobile enterprise that tours all around the country, visiting shopping centres and schools, and reaching out to socio-economically vulnerable areas. We are an arena for immersive experiences and scientific theatre, a stage and a learning environment in the heart of Sweden’s new life-science cluster in Hagastaden, and with a globally unique collection of artefacts, archives and images of scientific and technological value that help us to understand the world in which we live, as well as how we got to where we are now. Join us on a tour of the National Museum of Science and Technology, which over the past 100 years has become something so much more than just a museum.
