If you're an interior design enthusiast or simply a fan of the world's largest furniture retailer, today is your lucky day—Ikea is opening the first IKEA Museum in Älmhult, Sweden.

The new hall is located at what used to be the first Ikea store, which opened in 1958 and closed in 2012. Visitors get to see the main exhibit which tells the rich history of the company—including the story of founder Ingvar Kamprad and how he built his empire. 

It also features stories from loyal clients and how they use Ikea products in their everyday lives. Tourists and visitors get to experience a trip down memory lane through the displays inspired by spaces from the 70s, 80s, and 90s showcasing Ikea furniture. You can browse the covers of the iconic catalogs throughout the years, too. 

They have also decided to set up a temporary exhibit that will be updated twice a year and curated by highly acclaimed designers and architects. Lastly, the experience will not be complete without an in-house store where you can snag items from the current collection and reissues of discontinued pieces.
