We offer free teachers’ guides in Swedish for selected exhibitions, and 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. And don’t miss our educational tool 50 pictures, perfect for teachers who use art images in the classroom.
Planning your next visit:
- Contact the booking office and tell us when you want to come, so there won’t be too many guided tours at the same time. Send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us on +46 (8) 5202 3501 on Tuesday–Friday between 10 and 12. 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.
- 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.
- Prepare your visit. We provide teachers’ guides for most of our temporary exhibitions. They can be downloaded here: Teachers’ guides.
- 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.
- Read our rules for visitors!
