We are so excited to reopen our doors to the general public on September 5th, 2020. Our exhibitions will be open every Saturday and Sunday between 12-5 PM. Free admission as usual.

We have been working hard to create a plan that keeps everyone safe while visiting House of Sweden. All necessary measures have been taken including, but not limited to; temperature check, contact tracing, limit of 20 people at a time, mask requirements for adults and children ages 9 and up, separate entrance and exit, hand sanitizer stations, frequent cleaning of all high touch areas and safe social distancing throughout the building. 

The children room and rooftop will remain closed but we hope to open them soon!

Worn by world artists such as Lady Gaga and Björk, Swedish designer and artist Bea Szenfeld has made international headlines with her spectacular paper couture. Papier displays Szenfeld's handmade paper garments with Stina Wirsén's expressive fashion drawings as a colorful backdrop. The two artists meet in a mutual affection for the analogue handmade process and for the love of paper.
