Exhibition Migrants Gripsholm Castle

The summer exhibition at Gripsholm Castle portrays twenty-three migrants to Sweden who played major roles in Swedish history. One thing that they all have in common is that they have actively contributed to the development of our society.


Open 1 June–29 August, daily 10:00–16:00* at Gripsholm Castle.

*Opening hours may need to change in view of ongoing developments.

The exhibition features people with diverse destinies and great social breadth and cultural diversity. These migrants reflect Swedish history from the era of great power until our democratic society of the 20th century. The exhibition includes three Swedish queens and a royal attendant.

The majority of those featured are cultural personalities – opera singers, song writers and artists. A few names are surprising, as they are now regarded as a natural part of Sweden.
