13 years and older

Let your pupils experience art with one of our inspiring expert art educators. Book a guided tour on a theme, including tour and workshop session, or visit on your own.
Seeing and discussing art stimulates the students’ ability to analyse what they see. In the encounter with art they practise putting thoughts into words, listening to others and daring to think critically.

We offer students the opportunity to understand themselves and their world better through art. Here they can learn about the art in the museum collection and the historical and cultural context that engendered it.

Planning your next visit on your own

To avoid double bookings for guided tours, please contact our booking office in good time and notify us of the date of your visit. E-mail: booking office

Always inform the entrance desk that you are visiting with a school class, even if you haven’t booked a guided tour. Each class visiting Moderna Museet will be welcomed by one of our hosts, who will give a short introduction to the Museum and the ongoing exhibitions.

The best time for a visit is Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. A good time to visit on your own is before lunch, when the exhibitions are usually quiet.  Tuesdays are usually heavily booked, and you may have to wait to see the exhibition you came for. Pre-booked groups have priority to the exhibitions.

Select 4–6 works. Experience has shown that pupils usually get more out of a structured visit, where they have time to study a limited number of works (4–6) in peace, rather than trying to see everything.

Teachers’ guides and 50 pictures

We offer free teachers’ guides in Swedish for selected exhibitions. And don’t miss our educational tool 50 pictures, perfect for teachers who use art images in the classroom.

Educational resources

Our current exhibitions and learning activities are presented once every term at our popular teachers’ evenings. We also offer half-day or full-day Further education for teachers, customised to your special requirements.
