The National Museum of Science and Technology – all little genius’ favorite place

The National Museum of Science and Technology has a clear vision to be “every little genius’ favorite place”. The museum wants to strengthen children and young people’s technical confidence and awake curiosity for technology and science at an early age.

In September 2015 the museum opened its largest investment to date; the new science center MegaMind. A brand new exhibition focusing on hands on, interactive installations and the inclusion of everyone, no matter what the premise might be. Here you can explore and discover how everything fits and works together. An exciting journey from the infancy of industry to grand visions of the future. Paint with your eyes, make virtual sculptures or create music using the power of thought! MegaMind is a place where you experiment your way to new ideas and train your brain to become even more creative.

The museum gives priority to children and young people who are our main target group. Our business shall be created according to their needs and to be perceived as relevant by them. The clarity of this has been innovative and has contributed to the result of being the children’s favorite museum of today. Our work to be an including place for everyone, “every little genius’ favorite place” was recently awarded with Sweden’s most prestigious award for museums; The Museum of the Year.

The National Museum of Science and Technology is Sweden´s biggest museum of technology and has a national charter to preserve technical and industrial history as part of our cultural heritage. Visit www.tekniskamuseet.se/en for the latest news on exhibitions and events.
