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.
In 2021, some parts of the exhibition are closed: the Barefoot Path and the green corner.
Grow the City is included in the free ticket that applies to the museum. NOTE! Ticket required, even though it is outdoors!
This year, the exhibition focuses even more on how we can help insects and other small bugs, and thus contribute to biodiversity. This year's news:
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.
