Skokloster Castle, northwest of Stockholm, was built between 1654 and 1676. Its collection consists of 50,000 objects, including a significant library and armories. The history of all the artifacts can be traced from room-by-room catalogs written in 1710, 1716, 1728, 1756, 1794, 1823, 1845, 1910, and 1930 and two inventories from 1672 and 1676. This contribution discusses the interplay between the building and the objects housed in it over 350 years, focusing on the storage of some representative objects made from different materials over 300 years. The experience at Skokloster demonstrates that artifacts can be well preserved over long periods in a heavily built structure made from traditional building materials without specialized systems for climate control.
