Unicorns. If you believe in me, I’ll believe in you

What does a unicorn look like? A white horse with a billowing mane and a long, spiral horn on its forehead or a little purple pony with wings?  The unicorn myth has existed for thousands of years and it looks different in different places around the world.

In recent years, the unicorn has regained its place in popular culture and has become a symbol for everyone’s right to love. Both now and then - always full of magic and secrets. But who is the unicorn? 

Objects from four museum collections are on view

Unicorns. If you believe in me, I’ll believe in you is a family exhibition about the mythical unicorn and the significance it has had and still has today. There are items displayed in the exhibition that are connected to artefacts kept in the Royal Armoury Collections, as well as the Historical Museum, the Hallwyl Museum and Skokloster Castle.

Exhibition for the whole family

People of all ages can explore the world of the unicorn here. What is hiding in the mysterious trunks or in the story books and what does it feel like to stroke a unicorn?
