The royal palaces will close temporarily

In connection with the current situation regarding the spread of the new coronavirus, HM The King has decided that public operations at the royal palaces should be closed temporarily.


This decision applies from 21 March until further notice, depending on ongoing developments. As before, pre-booked group tours, talks and other programme activities are cancelled.

“This is a safety precaution in view of the development of coronavirus,” explains Governor of the Royal Palaces Staffan Larsson. “The situation means that it is impossible for us to carry out public operations at the royal palaces. We are monitoring developments, and look forward to welcoming our visitors back as soon as possible. In the meantime, we will be working to make our exhibitions and palaces more accessible via our digital channels. The royal parks will also remain open, unless we announce otherwise.”

Pre-booked tickets for entry, tours and programme activities during the period of closure will be refunded.

Märta Måås-Fjetterström exhibition is extended

The "Look at the rugs – find me" exhibition will be extended until the autumn, in the hope that we can re-open to visitors later this year. We will announce when we are open again here on the website and via our social media channels.

In the meantime, follow us online!

You can continue to find out about our history and the royal palaces via our website and on social media, with films, articles, virtual tours of the palaces’ room and historical accounts.

Here, you will also find the latest updates about when the royal palaces will be open.
