The National Museum - Architecture has reduced capacity due to Covid-19. This also leads to some cancellations. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Fragile porcelain figurines, impasto paintings, feather-light hats, paint-spattered spray cans, drawings of long-lost but splendid buildings, and a teak radio. These are some of the objects that joined the National Museum’s collection last year.

This exhibition presents around 130 of these newly-acquired objects, which span a wide range of genres, from painting, sculpture and printmaking to the applied arts, architecture and design. The most recently-made works date from 2019, while the oldest – Olaus Magnus’ book on the ethnography, natural history and notable features of the Nordic region – left the printing press in Rome in 1555.

The ticket is only for the tour, entrance fee is additional.
