“We’ve had a great laugh watching footage of a trailer with a stuffed rhino driving through the city,” says Martin Testorf, jubilee coordinator, about the move from the old premises in central Stockholm to the new building further out near Stockholm University. While the build can be said to have been somewhat of a vanity project, boasting highly advanced construction engineering with towers and domes made of bricks from Helsingborg and granite from Roslagen, the new location was met with scepticism. “People thought it was a catastrophe, moving the museum a few kilometres outside of the city centre,” says Testorf.
