The Treasury

The Treasury, or Skattkammaren museum, is situated in the cathedral’s north tower and is home to to one of Europe’s finest collections of medieval church fabrics.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the pandemic maximum 9 visitors are allowed in the Treasury, 3 on each level. Take the lift in turns and only with family members/your company.​ Please, remember to keep a distance!

In the Treasury you will find bishops’ copes from the 13th century and later, the mid-15th century Marian chasuble, Archbishop Nathan Söderblom’s cope that he wore at the ecumenical synod of 1925.

Queen Margareta’s golden dress is the world’s only preserved evening gown from the middle ages and the so-called Sture Clothes are the only complete collection of men’s wear that survives from the Renaissance. During autumn 2021 the dress will be on loan to Christiansborg castle, Copenhagen.

The Cathedral’s oldest silver and objects from the royal tombs are also on display.

The museum is open Monday-Saturday 10.00–16.00. Sundays and holidays 12.30-16.00. The museum is closed on Good Friday, 30 April, Midsummer Eve and may be closed on 24 December.
