Outdoor exhibition

In the outdoor exhibition we guide you through the one hundred years that has passed since the cemetery was inaugurated.

The outdoor exhibition is located at the main entrance towards Sockenvägen.

Here you can follow through the history of Skogskyrkogården: from the first decisions, the ideas of the architects and the long development of landscapes and buildings. You can also learn about the planning of new burial grounds and upcoming renovations.

The place is also described as a workplace: for unemployed relief workers, thousands of cemetery workers and others.
