Loved wandering around this beautiful museum. There were 3 artists showing their photography, only one of which I didn't enjoy, but we picked up some great posters at the end to remind us of our time there. You must go, even if just for the lovely restaurant/cafe on the top floor (which does amazing cakes and things by the way)... More

We visited Forografiska a couple of weeks ago. At the the time, they had four different exhibits. I liked two of them. Afterwards we had a light lunch in the cafeteria. Good food and nice view.

The firstclass exhibitions are located in a calm environment. In the restaurant on the top you have a beautiful view over the water, the lunch was average. All lockers were occupied.

Personally I loved the exhibitions that I checked beforehand and was particularly interested in, however, in my opinion the others varied a lot more with quite some I did not like so much. After we heard that they had a great brunch we decided to go there with some friends and our 2-year old. We booked through their own booking... More

Isn't the title saying enough! The only drawback is the long icey walk in winter from the metro station to their building

Really interesting museum in a lovely location by the waterfront in Stockholm. A Scandinavian friend told me this was the best museum in town and I wasn't disappointed. There were three exhibitions from very different photographers who photographed very different but equally thought provoking subjects. Visiting a museum like this really stimulates you to think about the world and its... More

The Museum had good displays and was well laid out. A fascinating varied set of collections were there at the time of our visit with an amateur competition, a world photographer and a Hollywood portrait photographer. The display descriptions were Informative and stimulating. It was interesting that the picture titles were only in English while display descriptions were in both... More

Fortunately, my brother-in-law is a photographer based in Stockholm, so I really had the tour guide I needed. Wonderfully located by the Baltic sea that enters Stockholm, the museum is a well planned gallery with well lit exhibits and a smooth flow of viewing. I particularly like the video presentations of how the exhibits were photographed. I am trying to... More

Incredible gallery space with fantastic exhibits. The 3 exhibits at the time were Herb Ritts, Jimmy Nelson and Adi Nes. 3 very different but equally good photographers. Lighting and layout was perfect in each exhibit.

Nice, easily accessible museum on the water. Great exhibition space with several arts displaying at once. Not a huge museum but done very nicely. Great bathrooms!
