Museum of Movement


Welcome to Dansmuseet

Dansmuseet – Museum of Movement is dedicated to world dance, theatre, art and photography from across the globe. The unique collection is based on the life of Rolf de Maré (1888-1964) and his extensive travels. Temporary exhibitions are put on every year. The museum also has a shop with a large selection of dance DVD’s, books and gifts.

The Museum is located on Drottninggatan 17 in Stockholm, near Sergels Torg. Find us

February 5 – May 1 2016. Free admission.
