Important information for our visitors

The coronavirus pandemic has had a severe impact on people’s lives around the world, and has altered the everyday we have taken for granted.

It has also led to great changes in this year’s exhibition programme here at The Nordic Watercolour Museum. Our planned celebration of the museum’s 20th anniversary, along with our major anniversary exhibition Animal Kingdom, featuring a host of international artists from the 17th century to the present day, has been cancelled.

Instead we are proud to present a new exhibition, Flora, Fauna och Kroppens tunna skal.

In 20 years since first opening, The Nordic Watercolour Museum has built up a wide circle of friends. They include our visitors, as well as the artists represented in our collection. In a time when old plans are being scrapped and new ones are hard to make, we have received firm evidence of friendship from three much-loved Nordic artists, whose sincere commitment and great flexibility have made this summer’s exhibition possible.

Flora, Fauna och Kroppens tunna skal presents new and earlier works by Lars Lerin, Maria Nordin and Bernd Koberling. Works by perhaps Sweden’s best-known nature painter Bruno Liljefors are also being shown, on loan from the Gothenburg Museum of Art and Prince Eugen’s Waldemarsudde in Stockholm. Our summer exhibition is comprised of three distinct parts. You can read more about the exhibition here.

The exhibition of Jongsuk Yoon’s monumental murals is being extended until autumn 2020. Read more about the exhibition here.

We sincerely hope to be able to open the museum to visitors on 21 May 2020. The safety of our staff and visitors must of course come first, so please bear with us if we should need to change our plans.

We all need to learn how to adapt to a new everyday of social distancing, and we are developing methods to ensure everyone in the building feels safe. The works in the exhibition will be hung in a way that ensures visitors can keep two metres apart.

Opening hours for summer 2020 are daily 11 am–4 pm.​
