Information about the Corona virus

As of 28 march and until further notice, the Museum of Work is closed to the public. This following the Government’s decision to ban gatherings of more than 50 people. 

It is important that everyone helps to limit the spread of infection. 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. 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.

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


Due to the Corona virus, Café Espresso House at entrance level and Restaurant VY on the sixth floor are closed until further notice. Please see the respective website for up-to-date information.


We continue to offer group visits to Jobblabb (WorkLab) for children in fifth grade in Östergötland. All other group visits are unfortunately suspended until further notice, including group visits to the Little Museum of Work or without a guide. The school visits to WorkLab are one group at a time. This lets us monitor the number of people in our premises so that we don’t exceed current recommendations with regards to the Corona virus. The situation may of course change if the Public Health Agency issues new recommendations.
Due to the corona virus, booked group and school visits planned to take place during March may be cancelled or rebooked free of charge. Please e-mail for more information about visits that have already been booked.


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


All programme activity is cancelled until further notice.


Our museum archive is currently closed and will reopen 15 August. For questions regarding our archives, please contact us after the summer.


We are cancelling a number of courses for museums of working life in the spring. We hope that we will be able to hold these courses in the autumn instead. The courses have been cancelled taking into consideration the Public Health Agency’s recommendation that people aged 70 or older should limit their social contacts until further notice. Many of our course participants are older people, who are particularly vulnerable to the spread of infection. Please see for up-to-date information about courses.
