The purpose of the exhibition is to raise awareness and highlight the importance of preparedness and to enhance an interest in defence among young people.

The exhibition has two parts: an experience-based part in which visitors have the chance to experience the feeling of being in a war through movement, sound and technology. The second part is interactive, focusing on Sweden’s history of defence and what individuals can do today to get involved in the defence services.

People can visit the exhibition at the University Library Carolina Rediviva, where there will be a container outside the library in which people can view a student room before and after a grenade explosion.

Tänk om – tillsammans i krig och fred is a collaboration between the National Swedish Museums of Military History, the Swedish Armed Forces, the Swedish Security and Defense Industry Association and the higher education institutions at which the travelling exhibition is being hosted.
