Complete Guide to the IKEA Museum Shop Sweden

The IKEA Museum Sweden is an ode to the Swedish furniture giant, a place to reflect upon the astronomical growth of this much loved furniture store and see all the changes and developments since the 1950’s when the first store opened.

Fun Fact: Did you know the ORIGINAL Ikea Store was in this very building?

It’s true. 

Upstairs, you can check out the history of IKEA .

There’s a chance to look back through the IKEA Museum Catalogue and see displays of vintage IKEA furniture, learn the story of founder Ingvar Kamprad, and take a look at key introductions to the IKEA business, including the infamous Allen Key, famous IKEA furniture, and more. 

But for shoppers, the most important part of visiting the museum is to stop by the IKEA museum store downstairs.
