Visitor comfort and accessibility
We strive to provide all visitors with comfortable and easily accessible premises.
For visitors with allergies: there are no allergy-producing plants in the museum, but strong odours may result from construction activities. Pets are not allowed to enter the museum.
Dogs and pets
Pets are not allowed into the museum. However, guide dogs or service dogs are of course welcome.
Visitors with small children
For visitors with children it is easy to move about in the museum with a baby carriage. There are spacious lifts, parking areas for baby carriages, and strollers that can be borrowed during a visit. There are also diaper changing tables and microwave ovens for warming baby food.
Visitors with impaired hearing, vision or mobility
There are accessible parking, induction loops available in Cosmonova and the auditoriums, and special places at Cosmonova. All exhibitions are adapted for wheelchairs, except the exhibition Treasures from the earth's interior, which at present is only reached by stairs.
The main entrance is closed for renovation, from November 11 and about five weeks on, and you enter the museum from our courtyard entrance.
English narration at Cosmonova
Receivers (limited quantity) for English translations can be borrowed at the theater's entrance upon admission. Please let us know if you wish to do so. It can be used with your own stereo earphones (3.5mm plug), or you can purchase a pair here at the ticket office for 15 SEK. The programmes are in Swedish, without subtitles.
Information in English
Several exhibitions provide information in both Swedish and English. For those which display Swedish only, English translations are available at the information desk on the ground floor.
Guided tours of the exhibitions, in Swedish, are offered on certain weekends and holidays. For those who want a guided tour in the exhibition The Human Journey, but would rather wander the exhibition on their own than join a group, there is an audio guide available.
Brochures for the various exhibitions, each including a floor plan and most in both Swedish and English, are available in the entrance hall, the ticket office and, in some cases, at the relevant exhibition. Digital versions of the brochures are available on the museum website.
We work continuously to improve the level of accessibility by following Accessibility guidelines.
