Arctic – soon to be Sweden’s best exhibition?

Arctic – soon to be Sweden’s best exhibition?


The Arctic – While the Ice is Melting, Nordiska museet‘s own exhibition, opened in October last year. And now the highly acclaimed exhibition has been nominated for Exhibition of the Year 2019!

Nordiska museet is up against two other finalists: the Skate exhibition at The Regional Museum of Kristianstad and the Hjärnrummet exhibition at the Vattenhallen Science Center at Lund University. Those of us who have visited The Arctic – While the Ice is Melting are keeping our fingers crossed that the winner will be from Royal Djurgården.

The winner will be announced at the Swedish Museums Association’s Spring Meeting in Visby in April. Make sure to keep an eye out on our website and social media channels to see if Nordiska museet takes the crown.

And if you haven’t had a chance to visit the exhibition yet, well then what are you waiting for?
