Moving to Mars – dream or nightmare?

How we use the earth’s resources is one of the most important issues of our time. Here at Djurgården, we take a leading role. We highlight issues and solutions to today’s problems, while offering fantastic and exciting visitor experiences. At Djurgården, you can not only travel in time through Sweden’s exciting history, but also into the future.

Ever since 26th February 2021, it has been possible to take the journey to Mars, right here at Djurgården.
The critically-acclaimed space exhibition, ‘Moving to Mars’, from the Design Museum in London, has now landed at Tekniska museet. It is the first international stop on a world tour.

Now you can feel what it is like to be on Mars

Moving to Mars is being shown at the same time as the ‘Anthropocene’ exhibition, until 9th January 2022.
Mars has been a source of fascination for humans for thousands of years. Our dreams of one day setting foot on the red planet may soon become a reality. The Design Museum in London has created a multi-sensory exhibition, where you can not only sense the smells, light and sand beneath your feet, but also step inside a full-sized living space.

As a visitor, you get to feel what it would be like to stand on the planet’s barren surface, hundreds of millions of kilometres from your home on earth. The exhibition’s design aims to give you a new perspective on sustainable innovation, where material choice, shape and technology are key.

Sustainability in focus

A large part of our preparations for a life on Mars are about making the most of our scarce resources, right down to the smallest detail. We have to minimise the amount of energy, water and food we waste and learn how to survive in the planet’s inhospitable climate. The exhibition concludes by asking us whether we should really move to Mars. Perhaps the insights we gain from the exhibition can instead be used to take better care of the planet we already live on.
