Sofa tours

Live-streamed guided tours


Join us for a guided tour in the comfort of your own sofa! Moderna Museet is closed and all events are cancelled but the art remains. Find a comfortable place to sit and join us, and get answers to your questions about art when our staff and guides show some of our works. Sofa tours take place daily and will be live-streamed at 12 noon on the Moderna Museet Instagram and Facebook pages.

Due to the coronavirus, Moderna Museet has cancelled all its scheduled activities until 31 March. The Museum will be open as usual, but guided tours will only be available digitally.
