Moderna Museet reopens on 16 June

As of June 16, you can once again experience art on site! Moderna Museet will reopen – adapted to the new normal. Children’s activities will be moved outdoors, our guided tours are digital and the exhibitions spaces will be free from crowds. Several changes have been made, so that you can feel safe during your visit.

Due to the new covid-19 situation, we are taking measures to prevent the risk of contagion. We will ensure that there is no crowding, and we are asking everyone to maintain a distance of at least 1.5 metres. We are also supervising admissions, so the Museum does not have too many visitors at a time.


From 16 June you will have a new chance to see the exhibition Walid Raad: Let’s be honest, the weather helped. The exhibition, which opened on 15 February, is extended until 16 August.

The first posthumous exhibition of John Baldessari, which was due to open on 21 March, will instead open on 16 June. This exhibition is also extended, until 25 October.

What are we doing at the Museum to prevent contagion?

Not too many visitors at a time

Based on the Public Health Agency’s recommendations, we ensure that each visitor has around 10 square metres of space, and we are not admitting too many visitors at a time.

Making it easier to stay apart

There are floor markings to make it easier to keep your distance in the queue to the information desk, and in the shop, restaurant and café. Visitors are reminded to keep 1.5 metres apart.

No cash

We do not accept cash at Moderna Museet. Card payment is accepted for admission, tickets and purchases in the shop, restaurant and café.

More frequent cleaning

We have increased cleaning frequency to ensure a clean environment on your visit. We will clean all areas that are especially exposed to contact with hands (door handles, taps, soap dispensers, pay stations) more often. Hand sanitiser is available.

What can you do as a visitor?

  • You are welcome to visit us if you feel healthy. If you feel unwell, stay at home until you get well.
  • We also ask all our visitors to be considerate by keeping 1,5 meters distance from one another.
  • Wash your hands often, and use hand sanitiser if you can.
