The Stockholm Exhibition of 1866 was inaugurated on 15 June by Crown Prince Oscar, King Charles XV being indisposed due to illness.

 

Sweden, Norway, Denmark & Finland combined to present Scandinavia's first exhibition of industry and art in Stockholm in 1866. The exhibition building was in Kungstradgarden park. The Exhibition building in the park was built in wood, the central hall had an octagonal glazed roof. The architect for the building was Adolf W. Edelsvärd. The, then newly opened, National Museum of Blasieholmen in Stockholm(designed by German architect Friedrich August Stüler) was also used for some of the exhibits.
