“Good exhibition”

Museum of Ethnography
Ranked #156 of 334 things to do in Stockholm
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 February 2013

The last time I visited was to see the exhibition on Vodoo (Haiti) which was quite good. It really gave you a good insight both in vodoo and in the exciting history of Haiti. The museum has exhibits from various parts of the world where Swedish explorers have been (that's the way it started anyway). Recently an impressive totem pole from NW USA was returned to the native Indians there, but there are other things left. It's a medium size museum and OK. You can easily combine it with either the Technical or the Sea Historical museums.

If you like ethnography, tribal art & anthropology, take the time to jump off the 69 bus en route to or from the Thielska Galleriet and visit this small gem. Great old black and white footage of Swedish missionaries in the Congo in the late 19th century, a wide range of African, Oceanic, Arctic and Native American items in well presented displays. Japanese a bit disappointing and the current Mekong exhibition is not up to much, especially if you have travelled anywhere on the Mekong. Obviously not up to the same quality and breadth of collection like Quai Branly in Paris or Berlin Ethnographic but if you like this kind of stuff, seek it out and enjoy and hour or two. Nice cafe as well.

We found the collection to be pointless and rather silly.

It was almost a "Kumbayiah" museum, giving tiny non-specific slivers of information about various cultures without telling you anything about them.

Ugh!
