The Swedish Royal family does not use this as their home, though, but there is a balcony where they can wave from on different occasions, such as the king's birthday, which is today. Diplomats are received here. Meetings are held here. And, of course, parts of it are used as a museum. Technically, there are five (plus the Royal Stables), which are separate museum parts of the castle with different names and different tickets, but there is a common ticket as well that gives you discount if you decide to visit all of them in seven days time. Noteworthy is that some of these museums do not permit photographs indoors at all, while other require special permission from the Royal court or other special occasions. The Night of Culture, Kulturnatten, when many museums are open till midnight once a year in the spring, is one of these occasions.
Cleverly, some photographies from the exhibition were for sale for 1973 SEK - the year when the king became the king.
