Grow the City

Come and experience the nature of the city at the Swedish Museum of Natural History's inner courtyard!

Watch the insects check into the hotel, and gain insight into the important role that nature plays in cities. The Swedish Museum of Natural History’s popular exhibition, Grow the City, opens every season in the museum’s courtyard.

The Experience

In the museum's green inner courtyard, you can enjoy the urban farm and be inspired to start your own. There are different stations where visitors can explore nature in the city
