Frequently asked questions
We are following the recommendations from the Public Health Agency in Sweden, in order to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and make sure our visitors are safe, whether you come on your own or with a group. We have taken precautions, for example, to ensure social distancing in exhibition halls, the shop and restaurant. Please contact us if you would like to know more: info.IKEA.Museum@inter.ikea.com.
Admission to the museum costs 60 SEK for adults and 55 SEK for seniors aged 60+. Admission is free for children under 18 and IKEA employees.
You can’t book tickets in advance but we do have a large capacity for visitors. We sometimes arrange special workshops and events, either free or paid, which may require advance booking. If so, that information will be published in the What’s on section.
We are happy to offer tours with our inspiring, knowledgeable guides. Open tours are available and included in admission for individual visitors and small groups. Check times for open tours under What’s on. We also offer more in-depth tours for small and large groups that should be booked in advance. Please visit our Guided Tours section to find out more.
Yes you can. We have several charging stations in the museum car park, which are activated after you’ve paid the admission fee to the museum.
If you use a wheelchair, walking aid or pushchair, you can move freely between all floors, through the exhibitions, and around the shop and restaurant.

Much of what has been sold at IKEA has been included in an IKEA catalogue. All Swedish catalogues 1950–2021 have been digitised, which means you can search for items you’re interested in to get basic information, such as the product name and price. If you can’t find a product yourself, we may be able to help you.
IKEA Museum does not have assembly instructions or spare parts for any products. If you need help assembling your IKEA furniture, please access instructions at IKEA.com.
IKEA Museum is happy to help with questions regarding the history of IKEA, but we do not make valuations. In Sweden, IKEA stores can value and sometimes buy your second-hand IKEA products for resale in stores, and in the first IKEA second-hand shop at ReTuna, Eskilstuna. If this service is not available near you, we suggest you check an auction site or contact an auction house if you would like to find out the second-hand value of an IKEA product.
IKEA Museum rarely buys old products. Having said that, if you have a vintage IKEA product which you think may be of interest, please send an email to Archive.Collection@inter.ikea.com.
No. However, our Museum shop sells unique items with an IKEA history, and miniatures of several iconic IKEA products. In Sweden, recycled IKEA furniture is bought and sold at all IKEA stores, and in Eskilstuna there is the very first IKEA second-hand shop, which sells re- and upcycled IKEA furniture and objects.
We do lend objects, primarily to other museums and to exhibitions and displays that can contribute to knowledge and understanding of the history and story of IKEA. To make a request and discuss the practicalities of borrowing an object, please contact Archive.Collection@inter.ikea.com.
