Welcome to the library

Information regarding Covid-19 

Due to the situation with the Corona virus and furloughed staff the library at Nordiska museet is closed for visitors and for incoming e-mails. We are unable to answer incoming enquiries and this inbox is not monitored.

If you need to borrow books from the library you are able to do Interlibrary Loans from your closest library.

If you need to return your borrowed books, there is a box for returned books outside the museum shop. This is available during the museums opening hours from the 1st of June 2020. Please visit the web page of Nordiska museet for up-to-date information:

All books on loan will be extended until further notice, and will not be reclaimed until this autumn.

We recommend having a look at the national library catalogue Libris, for other libraries that may have the books that you are interested in:
We are hoping that the situation will improve for the autumn and we kindly ask you to contact us again then. Please visit our web page for further information:

Thank you for your patience and understanding!
