If you have special needs and cannot get around the museum, we offer a visit to the exhibition Dreams of Skokloster on the castle’s ground floor. The exhibition displays the castle’s best-known artefacts from four centuries.

If you have difficulty standing throughout the tour, you can borrow a folding chair at the entrance. It is possible to bring a wheeled walker or other mobility aid into the castle, but you must be able to carry your mobility aids yourself.
