IKEA’s just done what it should have done a long time ago: it made a museum. Because IKEA’s so good at making stuff (or at least getting us to make its stuff), we’re not really surprised they’re opening a few creative exhibits.

The museum will open on June 30 in the very first Älmhult IKEA shop, so even if you’re not interested in checking out the nicely decorated museum rooms, you can visit for some good ol’ IKEA nostalgia.

Most of the museum will feature decorated rooms with iconic and popular furniture from the early twentieth century. But, this is IKEA we’re talking about, so naturally, the exhibits will be different from the showrooms at an ordinary IKEA. Ingvar Kamprad founded IKEA in 1943 and didn’t even start selling furniture until 1948, meaning the exhibits will be way more exciting than just having everyday furniture and Swedish meatballs (those are in there too though). It takes real talent to make furniture and its history seem fun. Well done, IKEA, well done.

Tickets cost around $10 CAD for adults, $6 for kids under 18 and are free for children under 6 (60 and 40 SEK, respectively). We’d love to go too, but first we have to finish building that bookshelf.
