Information about the Corona virus

The Museum of Work is open with limited opening hours: Tuesday–Saturday 9 a.m.–4 p.m.

The safety of our visitors and our staff are our highest priority. Below you’ll find more information about our safety measures regarding the Corona virus, and what you can do to protect yourself and others.

The Museum of Work closely monitors developments and any changes in our activity will be announced here on our website as they occur.

FUN FOR FAMILIES

There is lots of fun for families to discover at the museum. Why not try The Museum Detectives – search the museum and find the hidden clues! Another must-see is our new interactive exhibition Jobblabb (Worklab). Remember to try the bicycle carousel in our award-winning Framtidsland (Land of Tomorrow) on the 5th floor. While you’re there, say hello to our social robots in the exhibition Hej robot! (Hello Robot!). Don’t hesitate to ask our reception staff about our current exhibitions and activities.

Our popular exhibition Lilla Arbetets (Little Museum of Work) is unfortunately closed during the summer of 2020. The exhibition consists of many small spaces which make social distancing difficult. Our Creative Workshop is also closed until further notice.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

The Flat Iron, our striking museum building, has seven floors of generous space that makes social distancing easy. Signs and floor markings throughout the house remind visitors to keep a safe distance. We have increased the spacing between tables and seats. We monitor the number of visitors, and exhibition openings and other events have been cancelled to avoid crowdedness. If you are aged 70 or over or are part of another at-risk group: please comply with the Public Health Agency’s instructions and limit your social contacts.

HYGIENE

There is easy access to handwashing facilities and hand sanitizer in our premises. There are toilets on the first, second and third floor. Accessible toilets are on the first and second floor. On floors where there are no toilets, you’ll find hand sanitizer dispensers near the elevators. Our reception desk is equipped with protective plexi glass. Additional cleaning is carried out on door handles, railings, touchscreens and other areas that are frequently touched.

It is important that everyone helps to limit the spread of infection. We kindly urge visitors and staff alike to wash your hands often and carefully, sneeze and cough into your elbow and stay at home if you are ill, even if you have mild symptoms.

RESTAURANT & CAFE

Cafe Espresso House at entrance level is open and has the same opening hours as the museum: Tuesday–Saturday 9 a.m.–4 p.m. Naturally, current guidelines regarding the Corona virus apply in the cafe as well as in the museum.
Restaurant VY on the sixth floor is currently closed and plan to reopen in August of 2020. Please see the respective website for up-to-date information.

GUIDED/GROUP VISITS

All guided and group visits are suspended over the summer. However, you are welcome to book autumn visits to Jobblabb (Worklab), Framtidsland (Land of Tomorrow) and Hej robot! (Hello Robot!) at www.arbetetsmuseum.se/visningsforfragan. Due to the Corona virus, booked group visits may be cancelled or rebooked free of charge. Please contact pedagogik@arbetetsmuseum.se for more information.

CONFERENCES

We welcome small conference groups. For bookings and inquires, please contact our Conference desk at konferens@arbetetsmuseum.se or +46 11-23 17 00. Ordinary rebooking and cancellation rules apply.

PROGRAMME ACTIVITY

All programme activity is cancelled until further notice.

ARCHIVE

Our museum archive is currently closed and will reopen 1 September. For questions regarding our archives, please contact us after the summer.

COURSES FOR MUSEUMS OF WORKING LIFE

Our springtime courses for museums of working life are cancelled or carried out digitally when possible. This is because many of our course participants are older people, who are particularly vulnerable to the spread of infection. Please see www.arbetetsmuseum.se/kunskapscentrum for up-to-date information about our courses.
