IKEA Museum is for anyone who’s curious about IKEA. Curious about our history, curious about design, or curious about how Ingvar Kamprad from little old Agunnaryd created the global company we are today. Or you may just be curious to see what our very first store looked like.
Welcome to the IKEA Museum in Älmhult. Experience The Story of IKEA and get new perspectives on life at home and design.

Hagberg + Hagberg
Excellent design, smart function and sustainable quality, at a low price. Few can manage that equation better than Knut Hagberg and Marianne Hagberg. Together they have designed more than 2,100 products for IKEA, making them probably two of the most well-represented designers in Swedish design history. After all, who hasn’t at one time or another used BOLMEN in the toilet, had a FÖRSIKTIG (PATRULL) in the bathroom, organised their papers with DOKUMENT or taken an UPPTÄCKA on a trip? Now you can see all the icons, the drawings behind them and all kinds of unique objects here at IKEA Museum in Älmhult.
70 years of life at home!
The IKEA catalogue through the ages
Over the years, the IKEA catalogue has inspired readers and shown them new perspectives on life at home. Now you can dive into the history of the iconic catalogue and see how our homes have changed and developed.
The Story of IKEA
Our main exhibition The Story of IKEA takes you from the very beginning at Ingvar Kamprad’s childhood farm home in Agunnaryd, to the first IKEA store in Älmhult and out into the world. The exhibition is divided into three sections: Our Roots, IKEA Through the Ages and The Many Sides of Ingvar Kamprad.
