Stockholm City Museum offers programmes for pupils in preschool, primary, and upper-secondary school at the World Heritage site Skogskyrkogården.

During the tour, we explain what a world heritage is. We talk about why Skogskyrkogården is a world heritage site and provide some historical background information on the cemetery.

We also speak about the thoughts and period trends that influenced the architects. The esthetical outline of the cemetery and its architecture, art and design. How the landscape has been planned and preserved.

As several different religions are represented at Skogskyrkogården, we also talk about burials and funeral rites from a historical, religious and contemporary perspective. Many schools therefore use the visit to Skogskyrkogården as a starting point for questions and discussions regarding ethics, death and various funeral rites.

School field trips are also adapted according to the age of the pupils and the school's needs; contact us so we can plan a visit together.
