On Wednesday 9 October, The Crown Princess opened the exhibition 'The Arctic – While the Ice Is Melting' at the Nordic Museum in Stockholm.
Before the opening ceremony, The Crown Princess was given a tour of the exhibition which depicts everyday life for people in the Arctic. The exhibition has been interpreted and designed by the artist and design duo Museea, and uses object, photos, films and voices to introduce visitors to the history and future of ice.
During the opening ceremony, The Crown Princess gave a speech in which she said:
"Discovering new things, understanding the complex contexts, seeing the large in the small – throughout the ages, this desire has driven us forwards as people. Just like in the time of those great Nordic explorers Nansen and Nordenskiöld. So I am delighted that the Nordic Museum has decided to stage this exhibition. I hope it will arouse the interest and curiosity of many visitors."
