“Probably the most iconic museum in Stockholm. Impressive with the old warship Wasa in the center of the exhibition. But, don't get stuck with the ship, there is so much more to discover in the museum!”
“Amusement park open spring-autumn. Several concerts every week with national and international artists.”
“Modern Art Museum (Moderna Museet) collects, preserves, shares and exhibits modern and contemporary art. It opened in 1958, when modern art from the early 20th century and photography from 1840 and onwards was moved from the Nationalmuseum into a former navy drill hall on Skeppsholmen in Stockholm. The current building was completed in 1998, adjoining the old museum premises, and is designed by the Spanish architect Rafael Moneo. Moderna Museet also opened in Malmö in 2009. Moderna Museet is one of Europe’s leading museums of modern and contemporary art. Our vision is to continue to work in the open and experimental spirit for which Moderna Museet has always been known. The presence of the art and the artists is our key concern, along with our dialogue with an actively participating audience. By developing this interaction, we build a Museum for the future.”
“Nordiska Galleriet is the place to shop here in Stockholm. You will find plenty of different international as well as national brands here. Most of them are pricy. You can also find food and cafes here.”
“A modern photography gallery near Slussen subway station (take the green line or bus 3, then walk 5-10 minutes). It’s really cool and modern and they have a bar and restaurant up top.”
