What should be a great collection is unviewable while renovations continue until 2017. Wish they found some way to have at least a small nit on view somewhere else

You get a great display over early modern historical paintings with a connection to Sweden as well as nice separate exhibitions. Don't missed the lectures or the guides that are usually not very costly with the experts in the art, to get a deeper insight...More

This museum is packed with scenarios of Swedish life from long ago to today. The variety is outstanding; take your time and don't skip anything. You will learn a lot about Scandinavian life!

One of the few free museums in Stockholm. Very interesting and varied collection of sculpture and paintings, across different periods. Worth a short visit.

The National Museum is permanently closed but has two other temporary sites. The Art Academy houses a small permanent collection of art in a classical setting. Worth a small look. Disappointing not to see more Swedish Artists, rather than an international selection.

Norrmalm is Stockholm’s most central and busiest
neighborhood. It’s home to the main shopping street,
Drottninggatan, and to Stockholm icons like the
Sergels Torg glass obelisk, the famous Hay Market with
its Carl Milles sculptures, and the Hötorget
Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm
postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most
traditional department stores Nordiska Kompaniet and
