If this is the first time you are visiting us, you might want to know what to expect when you arrive at the Museum and how accessible it is. This page provides information to help you prepare for your visit.
The museum is open. We have opened carefully, with the safety of our visitors and staff as our top priority.
Tekniska museet covers an area of more than 10,000 m2, but to ensure that everyone in the museum will feel safe, all tickets must be bought online and in advance, and they are valid for a particular slot time. This means that:
To avoid overcrowding, we have also looked at what days and times are the most visited. Generally, Our recommandation is to avoid the morning, instead come during the afternoon or evening, a time when it’s less crowded at the museum. The museum is open until 22.00 everyday and after 16.00 the number of visitors are generally lower.
We have introduced a wide range of measures to ensure you can visit us safely, and we are working actively to minimise the risk of infection.
Anybody who experiences even the slightest symptoms must stay at home and not come to the museum. Take care to wash your hands often and carefully, and maintain a safe distance from others when visiting us. Make sure you follow the signs and floor markings in the museum, and listen to our members of staff who are helping to ensure everyone’s safety. As we are currently applying the system with a time-limited entrance slot, it can sometimes tend to be queues in the museum. We therefore urge you who visit us to try to limit your visit to 2.5-3 hours. This is of course not a requirement, but it would make it easier for us and you to keep the recommended distance and protect each other.
If you are not able to visit us in person, you can browse through all our digital material.
We can’t wait to see you again!
There is a picnic area where you can eat your lunch in a pleasant environment. The picnic area also has microwave ovens and a coffee machine, should you like to buy freshly brewed coffee.
There are also toilets and lockers, where you can store your coats and large bags. You will find the new service areas directly to the left of the entrance.
Toilets are available on all floors. RWC is available in the service area, in the restaurant and in the MegaMind exhibition.
If you would prefer to visit the Museum when things are a bit quieter, weekdays after 14.00 are usually a good time. Weekends and school holidays are generally more crowded, but if you want to visit then anyway, we suggest you get here after 14.00. We are open until 17.00.
There is a family room in MegaMind. It is open for changing babies’ nappies and for feeding. But also for anyone who just wants a quiet break.
In MegaMind, you can access all texts with icon support (which provides a shorter text with the most important information).
Are you going to come to the Museum with a stroller, rollator or wheelchair? There are wide ramps with 2.5 degree gradient and a lift for electric wheelchairs at the main entrance. Inside the building there are lifts between all floors.
Wheelchair accessible WCs and baby changing tables are located close to the main entrance (3.2 x 2.2 metres), the Restaurant (3.3 x 2.2 metres) and in MegaMind’s entrance hall (3.4 x 2.4 metres).
We have a limited number of pushchairs/strollers, baby carriers and wheelchairs that you can borrow. Talk to the staff at the Information Desk.
Outside the museum’s main entrance, there are three parking spaces available for visitors with special parking permits.
