My wife and I visited this in March. Being honest I was not so impressed in honesty. The photos were good (of course), but I hoped for a larger number of exhibits from the museum. It was far smaller than I expected and probably not enough to occupy you for more than an hour or so. We went to the... More

This is absolutely my favorite museum in Stockholm. I visit it every time while in Stockholm. They have very good exhibitions and the shop has wide selection of books of photography. The restaurant terrace front of the establishment is nice during the summer time. If you love photo exhibitions, this place is the place to go.

Really well maintained and thought out museum. Its tricky to find the way to walk to it from slussen, but that is not a big problem.

Check what they are showing first and google the pictures. Most of the time something good is on. It is a long walk from drottningagatan, about 30-40 min.

Here you can find different exhibitions with contemporary photography. Stroll around in the small shop where you can find books, posters and more. And don't miss the restaurant! Wonderful views, fantastic food and very attentive service. You probably need to make a reservation to get a table.

I love this place, even if I don't visit museums too often, this would be my first choice when visiting Stockholm. Enjoy your lunch (with wine perhaps) on the top floor restaurant/café with great view overlooking the water! A 5-10 minutes walk from Slussen metro station.

Visiting this museum makes any photo you've ever taken seem like a wasted opportunity. There are some truly excellent exhibits in a very aspirational setting. Lovely tori sit if the weather is a bit unpleasant, near to Slussen metro station. Worth a trip.

Got in as students without showing our cards which saved us a few precious kronor. Really high quality exhibition space with three or four shows on by big names in photography. The lighting is really good here, the rooms are dark overall with focused spotlights on the photographs against dark, rich coloured walls. Theres a very nice restaurant/cafe upstairs with... More
