The Swedish Museum of Natural History (Swedish: Naturhistoriska riksmuseet, abbreviated NRM) is a research institute and museum in Stockholm, Sweden. It was founded in 1819 by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, and is one of Sweden's oldest and largest museums.

The museum has a large collection of over 10 million specimens of plants, animals, minerals, fossils, and meteorites from around the world. The collection is used for research and education, and a selection of specimens is displayed in the museum's exhibitions.

The exhibitions cover a wide range of topics related to natural history, including the diversity of life, evolution, ecosystems, geology, and climate change. The museum also has a planetarium, which offers shows about astronomy and space.

The museum is involved in a number of research projects, both in Sweden and around the world, and collaborates with other institutions on scientific research. It also offers educational programs for schools and the general public, including lectures, workshops, and guided tours.
