New museum: Scenkonstmuseet
Swedish Museum of Performing Arts opens February 11 2017
Scenkonstmuseet is a premier experience centre devoted to the arts of dance, music and theatre, as well as being one of Europe’s leading museums for performance. At Scenkonstmuseet the synthesis of art forms is as important as the mix of people. Social diversity is also to be reflected and encouraged, with the aim that everyone should have the opportunity to participate.
Scenkonstmuseet brings the heritage of dance, music and theatre to life, through touching, enriching and engaging visitors. Its efforts to preserve and make available objects and musical instruments laid the foundations for this. Through the spectacular combination of interactivity and objects, the museum will reach an inter-generational and cross-boundary audience, both in Sweden and internationally. The collections include musical instruments, stage design models, costumes, art objects, theatrical figures and puppets.
