At home with… kings and queens
Welcome to the home of royalty! Many kings and queens have called the Royal Palace home. Can you find them? Our image hunts for children turn a visit into a voyage of discovery.
The Royal Palace has been home to many royals over the years. They all commissioned various artists to paint or sculpt portraits in which they look particularly regal.
These portraits can still be seen in the rooms of the palace, on the walls and ceilings, and in display cases. Some are tiny miniatures, while others are sculptures standing several metres tall. Here, you can see Queen Kristina, King Karl XI, King Gustav III, Queen Lovisa Ulrika and others. Can you find them all?
Collect an activity sheet from the front desk, and turn a tour of the palace into a journey of discovery. The members of royalty on the sheet can be found in the state rooms, and it's up to you to find their portraits.
Carry out the task by yourself during ordinary opening hours. The activity is suitable for children of all ages. As younger visitors look for the portraits, older visitors can learn about the reigns of kings and queens, and who created their portraits.
