A lot of cool and interesting photos throughout the exhibition. The café on the top floor was really nice, with this perfect view of Djurgården and Skeppsholmen.

Didn't know what to expect upon arrival. It definitely isn't for the faint hearted. The photos are bold and real and could be seen as offensive to some groups. It was definitely an electic selection of photographs that displayed life in various formats. Would not recommend for families with children under 15. The museum is beautifully situated along the river.

Fotografiska takes some effort to get to. A walk from Sodermalm or the metro, or a cab ride. it is worth the trip. Fotografiska showcases interesting and edgy photography. Stylistically this is not Ansel Adams. It is Helmut Newton and beyond. Many of the exhibits were nearly vulgar, but maintained an element of intelligence. It's not for your grandma or... More

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
