How we handle the situation around the Corona virus.
Be sure to double-check your details when booking tickets, annual passes and time slots. Only pre-purchased / pre-booked entrance tickets apply, and even you who have an annual card need to book an entrance ticket to be able to enter the museum. If you have an annual card that you have not been able to use during the time we have been closed, please contact us via email: email@example.com or phone 046-222 43 51, so that we can adjust the validity period.
When we now reopen, we do so carefully and with the safety of our visitors and employees as the first priority. For everyone to feel safe, we let in a maximum of 25 people per time slot and the visiting time with us is limited to a maximum of 2 hours. We are closed for 30 minutes between the time slots as we clean the experiments and clean up, before we welcome the next group of visitors.
We continue to follow the advice from the Swedish Public Health Agency and follow the development of Covid-19 continuously and work actively to prevent the spread of infection in our premises. Follow instructions on signs and our guides on the premises, keep your distance and avoid congestion. We are closed between the time slots for our visitors to have time to wash off experiments and clean up for the next group of visitors to come.
Anyone who feels the slightest symptoms should stay at home. If you can't visit us due to illness, please contact us.
