Bring your kids to the museum!

Meeting art together with children is often an eye-opening experience! Our family activities encourage children and adults to experience art and be creative together. We offer exciting and interesting activities for visitors of all ages. Activities to get you thinking and maybe even talking about what art might be.

You’ll find changing stations and also baby carriers to borrow at the museum. You’re welcome to bring a stroller into the galleries unless otherwise advised.

Our artworks are sensitive and they may not be touched, so hold hands with small children as you walk through the galleries. You’ll always find museum hosts on hand, so feel free to talk with them if you have any questions or thoughts about the art on display.

See you soon!

Our family activities

Stroller Tours

Even small babies can enjoy art. This is a guided tour at a slow pace for adults and babbling, crawling and screaming babies! Explore art with your baby. This is the perfect activity for you who are on parental leave. The tour is held by a guide and on each occasion we take a closer look at one of the ongoing exhibitions.
For babies aged 0–15 months in the company of one adult. The tours starts at 11.15 and 13.15 on each occasion.

Registration: Limited number of seats, registration is required! Tickets will be released two weeks prior to each occasion. Register by email to:, write “Stroller Tour” in the subject line, and which day and time you would like to come. Please note that the registration is personal and binding. The activity is included in the admission fee.

The tours are limited to 9 adults and 9 children per session, and no more than 6 strollers. Please note that the tour is held in Swedish.


Baby painting

Come and paint with your baby in our Workshop! We believe that even small babies should get a chance to get acquainted with artistic expressions and paint with the whole body. We can promise lots of laughter and mess!

This activity is aimed at the youngest ones and their adult companions. We create together and paint with organic edible colors made from buckwheat, turmeric, beetroot, wheatgrass and lingonberry. The babies can discover and explore the colors with both sight, touch, and taste.

There’s running water in the Workshop. However, we recommend that you bring a towel and a change of clothes, both for you and your baby. Stains of turmeric can be difficult to remove, so don’t wear your favorite clothes.

Baby painting requires full focus from you as an adult, as it can become slippery with a lot of color. You have full responsibilty for your baby during the activity.
Time: 11.15–12.45 and 14–15.30 on each occasion
Age: For babies 0–15 months
Cost: 120 SEK per baby
Registration: Limited number of seats, 9 babies and 9 adults. Registration is required! Tickets will be released at 12.00 at the exact date one week prior to each occasion.
