Find your way in the museum building

A guide to the City Museum’s three (and a half) floors.


See locations of various activities, premises and exhibition departments.

Floor 0

You get to level 0 via stairs or lift from the square above. Down here by the courtyard is the museum’s entrance with an information desk, shop, introduction room and cloakroom. At the lift hall, there is the Mellanrummet for families and for those who bring their own packed lunches.

There is exhibition room Tunnvalvet, next to the introduction room, with a separate entrance for people with a wheelchair or pram. Next to the information desk, there are toilets, one of which is accessible and has a changing table. There is also a defibrillator here.

On the opposite side of the floor is the museum’s café, with an accessible toilet. Here is also the Kafévalvet exhibition room.

Temporary exhibitions

The stairs and elevator in the middle of the house lead up to floor 1. To the left of the stairs begins the Stockholm exhibition department King’s City.

In Källarstugan we have different programs.
