About Gustav III's Museum of Antiquities
Gustav III's Museum of Antiquities, which is housed at the Royal Palace of Stockholm, is one of Europe's oldest museums and opened in 1794. King Gustav III was interested in art and antiques, and purchased most of the museum's sculptures during a journey to Italy in the late 18th century.
 
Shortly after his death, it was decided that the collections — which at the time consisted of more than 200 sculptures — should be displayed as a memorial to the late king.
 
The exhibition space consists of two stone galleries in the northeast wing of the palace, with beautiful views of Logården. The sculptures are positioned in the galleries exactly as they were originally displayed.
 
The museum is open to the public during the summer months.
