Information about the Corona virus

We are open Monday–Friday 9–17, Saturday & Sunday 11–17.

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

Our popular exhibition Lilla Arbetets (Little Museum of Work) is now open again. To visit the exhibition, you must pick up a number tag at reception – this is to make sure the exhibition doesn’t get too crowded. Don’t forget to return the tag to reception when you leave the exhibition. Opening hours for the Little Museum of Work

Our Creative Workshop is also reopened. The opening hours are Fridays 13–15 and Saturdays 11–15.

There is lots more 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.

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, including accessible toilets, on the first and second floor (and the sixth floor during the restaurant’s opening hours). 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. Restaurant VY on the sixth floor is also open, please see www.vynkpg.se for opening hours and up-to-date information. Naturally, current guidelines regarding the Corona virus apply in the cafe as well as in the museum.
