By on January 21, 2016

Sweden’s museums continue to attract large numbers of visitors. The new compilation from the Association of Swedish Museums shows that Naturhistoriska riksmuseet is one of the great favorites of visitors.

The investigation that the Association of Swedish museums conducted among its members shows that several museums have increased their visitor numbers significantly over 2015. The survey also shows that the Naturhistoriska riksmuseet with its 531,637 visitors is the third most visited museum in Sweden.

We are pleased to see that more and more people want to learn about nature. We take our mission seriously and constantly strive to new ways to get our visitors to discover how amazing and ingenious our world is, says Jan-Olov Westerberg, senior curator at the Naturhistoriska riksmuseet.

Last the museum could boast with such good visitor numbers was 2010. Now we look forward and prepares for the new year.

Since January 1, the museum has free admission because we are a national museum. We know from experience that it helps more visitors. We will also celebrate that our museum has been around for 100 years out in Frescati in different ways, so there are many reasons to visit us in 2016, says Jan-Olov Westerberg.
