I was there three twice, the first time to visit the library and buy a book about photography. And the second time to visit the museum and enjoy a Brazilian music concert on the second floor. There is a big room for people to sit comfortably and enjoy some meal while listening to some good music, but food there is... More

The exhibitions change all the time, so maybe we were just lucky, because the main exhibition that was on when we were there - Genesis by Sebastiao Salgado, was just wonderful. The museum is a nice place in itself, the restaurant at the last floor is really something, and if offers a great view of Grona Lund, Gamla Stan and... More

If this is what tax dollars can produce, then I'm all for it. The Sebastiao Salgado exhibit was on and we spent a very enjoyable morning going through it. There were two other artists on display at the same time (bonus!) which extended our stay for another couple of hours. The exhibit was extensive and well laid out. Even more... More

Fotografiska is a nice museum, very stylish. you can sit outside and inside, the walk to the museum is very pleasant and offers great views. While we were there, the museum was in between two exhibitions and thus half of the museum was not accessible. The exhibitions that were open were really nice however... The restaurant is very cosy and... More

We were there on a cruise (RC) and decided to walk from the ship into town. Probably about a 20 minute walk, good to burn some of the calories from all the over eating. This place is about half way into town, toilets are VERY clean and free. There is also seeing both inside and outside where you can connect... More

The exhibitions here are wonderful and the walk here is very nice. Once you have watched the pictures you really should try the restaurant. The food is as good as the spectacuar view.

Being a photography enthusiast, my opinion might be biased but I really enjoyed this museum. The exhibition was great and worth seeing. There is a nice cafe at the top and as well as outside (there was also some live music happening). A must-see if you like photography.
