The transparency principle

Moderna Museet is a government agency. In consequence, any messages sent to us are public documents.

Digital Accessibility

Moderna Museet’s ambition is that its digital presence shall comply as far as possible to established web standards and “vägledning för webbutveckling (fd 24-timmarsvägledningen)“(guidelines for web development, previously the 24-hour guideline). We strive to follow the guidelines for Swedish government organisations and the requirements on accessibility and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The tool for administering and publishing information is based on the web publication system WordPress. Our website was developed in accordance with recommended standards, rather than for a specific browser.
