Free Museums Attract Visitors

Published tisdag 1 november 2005 kl 11.43

The introduction of free admission to Sweden’s state-owned museums seems to be a success.

According to the National Council for Cultural Affairs, since 17 museums became free to the public at the beginning of the year, the number of visitors has gone up by 1.4 million, a 152 percent jump.

The biggest increase was at Stockholm’s Maritime Museum, where admissions are up 336 percent, while the Royal Armoury at Stockholm’s Royal Palace has attracted 252 percent more visitors than last year.

According to the council, most of the increase is from young people and first time museum visitors.
