The Orangery

Sweden’s oldest preserved orangery can be found in Ulriksdal Palace Park. It was built in the 1660s to grow and overwinter expensive exotic fruit. These plants were often used to ornament palace and castle gardens during the summer months. During Sweden’s time as a great power, exclusive fruits were an important element of the banquets arranged by nobility and royalty to impress their contemporaries.

The sculptures

Today, the Orangery also serves as a unique exhibition space for the National Museum’s collection of Swedish sculptures, together with the Orangery’s collection of plants. This was made possible thanks to HM The King’s decision in 1988 to make the Orangery available as a sculpture museum. The sculpture collection is a representative selection of the National Museum’s collection of Swedish sculptures from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, featuring works by famous names such as Carl Milles and Johan Tobias Sergel.
