Whilst i was there my favourite by far was Sebastio salgados exhibition.Worth the admission price on its own but like other museums in Stockholm if you have a stockholm card then its included.

It's a nice exhibition. The pictures are nice presented and really interesting. There are lots of white-black pictures and not as many colored pictures. At the end there is a shop where you can buy the pictures as postcards an so on. Next door is a nice bar.

The week we visited this museum we were lucky to catch a glimpse of Sebastio Salgado's exhibits. Mostly shot in the Amazon jungles and in the arctics. If you are in Stockholm do check out whats going on at Fotografiska. The museum shop is also top notch for buying knick knacks, gifts and photography books.

Current LIsa Ross and Selgardo exhibitions well worth visiting. Nice walk out to Fotografiska and pleasant coffee/eating area outside. If I lived in Stockholm, I reckon annual pass would be a good buy.

We walked from the Gtand Hotel, was pleasant walk, so easy access. Love loved the whole concept of the place and the way they took an industrial building and used it in this way, right on the water was brilliant. The photography exhibitions we saw were of the highest quality, esp the one entitled "Genesis" which I would look for... More

Highly interesting and thought-inspiring exhibitions – worth a visit! The café with outdoor serving is located with a nice view of Skærgården.

What struck me was the Architecture of this building. Red brick is not common in Stockholm. I love the industrial look right on the water. I highly recommend visiting this gallery...and very highly recommend seeing the Sebastiao Salgado exhibition. It's not cheap but it is well worth it. His photography is so unique and life changing!
