Come and PLAY!

Children are not the only ones who feel happy playing – play makes us all feel better. The interactive exhibition PLAY! offers various ways to play and looks at the philosophies behind IKEA’s work with play and toys. Here, however, the learning experience requires participation and exploration rather than reading.

Five ways to play

Bring the whole family to a world where young and old can enjoy a fun shared experience. The exhibition is divided into five chapters, representing the five different reasons why we humans play – to repair, to connect, to express ourselves, to escape and to explore. Experience the five different ways to play and discover what play-type you are.

Film and crafts

Do you like crafting? Our creative workshop is open every weekend and all summer from 10-18. From 15 June we’ll be showing children’s Swedish-language films in conjunction with the exhibition.
