IKEA Museum – Explore, eat, play and stay.

For IKEA, Älmhult is not just any town. Älmhult is where our roots are and is also the home of IKEA Museum, housed in our very first store from 1958. Join us on a journey from then, to now, and into the future. Älmhult is a great place for a specially tailored weekend break with the family. Experience our exhibitions, enjoy some good food, do some shopping, and stay over in the nice, light rooms at IKEA Hotell.

Welcome to the heart of IKEA.
