Dansmuseet / Museo de la Danza

Dansmuseet / Museum of Dance (Drottninggatan 17, Stockholm) – this museum is dedicated to world dance.  Dansmuseet was established in 1953 in a basement of the Royal Opera House in Stockholm. The collections and activities have developed a great deal over the years, and the museum has moved several times up until 1999 when it was housed in a magnificent bank palace on Gustav Adolfs torg, built in 1918. In spring 2013 the museum moved to Drottninggatan 17.  The museum has its origin in the Archives Internationales de la Danse, founded in Paris in 1933 by Rolf de Maré.  Admission is free.  Hours:  11 am – 5 pm (Tuesdays – Fridays only).


Apart from the permanent displays, several temporary exhibitions are put on every year. Dance films are always available and live performances. There is a large selection of events and activities to choose from during autumn, winter and spring.
