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.

Digital guided tour

Book a digital guided tour on the theme Modernism and modernity. We see works of art from the early 20th century and talk about modern society and the rise of modernism. The tour is suitable for grades 7–9 and upper secondary school and works on a common screen in the classroom, or on individual screens.

Planning your next visit on your own

Free admission for:

  • School classes with pupils under the age 18 (with a teacher)
  • Accompanying teachers and assistants
  • SFI-classes
  • Day centres/LSS with an art orientation

Prepare your visit

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

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.

We offer free teachers’ guides in Swedish for selected 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.

Check what works are currently on display by using Search the collection.

At the museum

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.

Teachers are responsible for their classes while visiting the Museum. We recommend students to stay with their teachers.

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.
