The museum is open

Opening hours




Welcome to Studio ArkDes! Hang out, build something, read a book or take part in our popular family activities at the weekends. In the Family ArkDes room, both children and adults can explore, play and build.

Studio ArkDes

Dig around among our books for children and young people on architecture and design in our attractive studio. Or try to build an arch using knot timber blocks. Each weekend, we organise activities with different themes. More information is provided in the calendar.

Family ArkDes

In the yellow house, both young and old can play in different spaces – high, narrow or soft. Take the time to read a book or build a city on ArkDes’ city mat.

25 March

Family Sunday: Build high!


Build high towers in our studio! In a family presentation in Architecture in Sweden, you pick up building tips and an insight into how people have tried to build high, stable buildings down the ages.

People have long been striving to be able to build as high as possible. Children and adults are welcome to work together to build high using thin paper tubes and hot-melt adhesive in our studio. Feel free to put whatever you build to the ultimate strength test: by taking it home with you.

Free tickets are available from the information desk when the museum opens. Be in time so you don’t miss the presentation! Limited availability. From age of 4.
