At the Visitors Center you can also visit our permanent exhibition, which tells the story of Skogskyrkogården’s origins and the work and ideas of the two architects Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz when designing the cemetery.

The architects also invited some of Sweden's most prominent artists to contribute to the artistic decoration of Skogskyrkogården, including names such as Sven “X:et” Erixson, Carl Milles, Otte Sköld, Bror Hjorth, John Lundqvist and many more.

The exhibition highlights beautiful details full of symbolism from the chapels and cemetery grounds, which are on display along with custom-made furniture and fittings made according to the architects’ blueprints.
