Come and experience the nature of the city at the Swedish Museum of Natural History's inner courtyard!
See the insects check in at the bug hotel and get an idea of the role of nature in the cities. Now it's time again for our popular exhibition, Grow the City, to be open in the museum's courtyard.
14 May – 25 September you can visit the exhibition SURR! where you get to meet some of the insects that pollinate our food and the wild nature.
Lack of old hollow deciduous trees affects our small insects. You can help them by building a mulch nest!
Turn a piece of lawn into a meadow to help bees, butterflies, other pollinators and flower visitors.
Do you have a sunny spot over or an unused sandbox? Create a bee beach, a sand bed for wild bees!
A branch fence is easy to build and provides housing for small insects, while you get the use of materials from the garden.
In the museum's green courtyard, you can enjoy urban cultivation and be inspired to grow your own. You can also explore the nature in the city through play and discovery.
