This article deals with the theme of research conducted at the museums, with a focus on state investigations, cultural politics and the internal development of the Swedish museal profession. The statistics and surveys that have been prepared on the theme of research at the Swedish museums all point in one direction – there is a lack of museum staff with professional research competence and the level of active research performed at the museums is generally very low. This article discusses these facts from a historic and museological point of view. The author claims that both museums and universities would benefit from a higher level of research being performed at the Swedish museums, especially when one looks at the nearly non-existent research about the exhibition as a arena for multi-lingual and multi-modal communication.
