Ironically enough, the first institute I was sent to, is also under reconstruction: Nationalmuseum. The 150 year old building is closed for several years while it undergoes thorough renovations and modernisations. Meanwhile the museum hosts temporary exhibitions at Kulturhuset and at the art academy. Nationalmuseum, founded in 1792, is one of the oldest public museums of Europe.
During my visit a French-Swedish class of children visited the museum, and they were pleasantly surprised to find out I spoke French. Since most children had time off from school, a lot of families visited the museum and participated in open workshops. Here kids don't just get dropped off and picked up later, like in Belgium. The parents and grandparents usually stay and most of them even enjoy getting their hands dirty as well. It's so great to see!
