A must for photography lovers (during my visit, the exhibition was devoted to E. Erwitt!). +: the location and the view on the harbor, the library -: difficult to find the location, no permanent exhibition

Visited on Saturday night and enjoyed some of the photographic work, but appreciated the great venue. Enjoyed a Swedish café dinner and live band in the bar area. Good spot, views, but hard to get to..long boring walk. Get a taxi.

Situated at the waterfront of the Stockholm harbour, the Fotografiska museet holds several changing exhibitions which are worth seeing. Enjoyed a drink at the restaurant with huge glass windows, a beautiful view on the water!

There were about five exhibitions (I was expecting more...) that only took me less than an hour to walk through. I enjoy photography, but most of it was a little too artsy-fartsy for my taste. The highlight was the top floor cafe with really cool decor and incredible views of Stockholm through the large windows. So if you didn't enjoy... More

...Than about the photography itself I went visiting Fotografiska the 24.09.14 The exhibition was not bad at all. Even though they've had exposed great pictures of even better artists. The number of different photographers was it, that made the whole thing a bit confusing. Somehow their work din't match together at all and made it different, to concentrate on a... More

Well worth a few hours especially if you are interested in photography. The cafe on the top floor has wonderful big windows looking out across Stockholm's islands, and as the museum is open until 9pm or even later most days, it's a lovely place to watch the sun go down.

We spent about 1 hour visiting the place. If you love photography, you will love the place. I am not big into photography but it was very interesting. The art on display was very eclectic and a bit on the wild side. (maybe I am a bit conservative...:)...) Cafeteria on the top floor had some very good food with some... More

This was one of the places we stopped with the hop on hop off boat. The exhibition was very nice, with many different themes.

The photographs were very nice and it was interesting to see.. However, we felt the exhibition was a little small. The canteen on the top had good, but a little too special food for our taste and it was expensive!

Fotografiska is the reason that I've been to Stockholm 3 times this year. Great exhibitions from the greatest photographers presented in a unique building on the waterfront. Even their cafe is nice!
