About the collections
Skokloster Castle is the largest private palace that has ever been built in Sweden. The architecture, the intact interiors and the exceptional artefacts make the castle one of the world’s foremost baroque castles. The collections consist of artefacts from the three owning families who have lived and worked at the castle.

Search in the collections
Our collection has been digitalised and we are constantly working to enhance the information about our artefacts and increase the number of photographs. You can search among the photographs and artefacts in our digital database. All information and media in the database can be freely used.
We share a database with the other museums that are part of the government agency National Historical Museums. This means that you can also find artefacts from the Economy Museum, the Hallwyl Museum, the Swedish History Museum, the Royal Armoury and Tumba Paper Mill Museum in the database.
Care of artefacts and conservation
Skokloster Castle is an environmental museum where various types of artefacts made of many different materials are included in the collection. The castle has a very special climate because it is not heated. The indoor climate is entirely controlled by circumstances outdoors. An important part of the work of preserving the castle and the collections for the future is the constant inspection and care. Some of the artefacts demand more comprehensive measures and must be conserved so that they can live on.
Conservators are mainly responsible for paintings, textiles, metal and paper, work on the castle’s collections.
