HM King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden will officially open the museum by cutting the ribbon, accompanied by HM Queen Silvia, HRH Crown Princess Victoria and HRH Prince Daniel.
On Saturday 13 October, Nationalmuseum will reopen its doors after five years of moving, renovations and reconstruction. More than 5,000 objects covering six centuries are now on exhibit in the newly renovated building, which when reopened has capacity for twice as many guests and has on display three times as much art as before. At 11.00, the inauguration ceremony will commence on the museum steps outdoors with an inaugural speech. HM King Carl will then cut the ribbon and there will be musical performances by Tensta Gospel Choir, KITOK, Frida Hyvönen and Sofia Karlsson.
