The exhibition

The 100 innovations exhibition showcases the most important innovations in history as rated by the Swedish people.

The National Museum of Science and Technology has put the Swedish people to the task of singling out the 100 most important innovations of all time. In statistically significant studies, adults and pupils aged 12, were asked to cast their votes for the most important inventions in history.

Visitors will also have the chance to make their voices heard, both in the exhibition and online, and influence what is displayed at the museum.

The people´s choices are displayed in a major exhibition of international standard that visualizes innovations in new and exciting ways. Alongside familiar old favorites are the next generation of innovations — innovations that are still on the drawing board or in the boardroom, or as yet nothing more than a clever idea jotted down on a crumpled napkin.  By enticing the innate curiosity of the visitors, the exhibition will encourage creativity, problem solving and an interest in entrepreneurship.

The 100 innovations are exhibited in a 2,000 square metre exhibition — the largest the museum has ever produced.
