Worth visiting, especially when you're into photography (like I am). Various photography exhibitions happening at the same. Upstairs, you can find the restaurant even with more exhibitions and a live band.

Definitely worth the trip. The photography is amazing and presentation equally so. At the top of the museum is also a restaurant with great views of the city and good food. Fantastic and interesting gallery open til late.. A perfect evening activity!

This must have been the 30th time I visit Stockholm and the first time I make it to this museum. It's not going to be the last. There were 4 different exhibitions. Herb Ritt's photos are amazing, they are a must see if you like photography. The compositions are amazing and they convey such a strong message of human passion.... More

Fotografiska is a nice place to visit while staying in Stockholm. Just to give everyone a heads-up: The current exhibition (Nov. 2014) includes a lot of nudity. Expect 1-2 hours walking through the exhibition. It has a mini-shop where you can buy various items (posters, t-shirts etc.) w/photography as a common theme.

For anyone with an interest in photography or art, this place is fantastic. Not really a museum as such, more of a gallery space. I visted when the Herb Ritts exhibition was on, and any photographer would be inspired. Well worth a visit.

Just stunning photography brilliantly lit and displayed. Go in the evening and have dinner in the cafe with a magnificent view of the Stockholm harbor.

If only we had this concept in New York City. What a wonderful job this "museum" (if you can call it that) does of programming and curating! Put this on your "must visit" list!

One of the best museums in Stockholm. Definitely worth the entry. You will see several different exhibitions: shocking, creative, deep and very interesting! We spent 2 hours there, it can be perfect for a rainy day as well!
