A super museum if you are in to photography. see how masters create visual art. Only problem is that there really is no easy way to get there unless you have a car or take a land or water taxi.

The Fotografiska museum is situated in a nice old factory building and has some nice views over the water. The Sebastiao Salgado exposition is brilliant

I have been to this museum many times, they show new artists frequently and the photos are always fantastic. Many famous photografers mixed with new names. Location is great with big windows overlooking the water and Gröna Lund. Great restaurant and café but a but expensive. Great gift shop!

If you are at all interested in photography, visit this wonderful museum whilst the current exhibitions are still on (Salgado & Petersen). Great images, lovely cafe, wonderful views of Stockholm waterfront.

We were lucky enough to catch Sebastião Salgado's GENESIS which was so amazing and large it was overwhelming frankly. This is an excellent gallery / museum with well thought out curation and much to offer as far as courses, events, books and dining.

I don't know otherwise. It's in a repurposed Customs House. Several huge exhibits of modern and avant-garde photography. Frequent turnover of temporary exhibits, so what's there now will be different. Excellent café.
