I would expect that any national art collection closes in sections. Also, the official web page displays opening hours for "today" that do not correspond (as it is closed). This may be due to a very small collection, hence, no reason to phase the works. A disappointment

One of the smallest national art galleries in Europe. Has a very uneven collection consisting mainly of warbooty and a biased selection of 19th and 20th century paintings.

I only see the outside and wasn't able to get in. The museum is under renovation. Words has it that it'll open in 2016 or 2017.

Most of the important paintings on tour while the Gallery undergoes a major renovation. The Museum is mounting temporary exhibitions at the Konstakademien until the renovaitona are completed

We were shocked to see a historic exhibit. There is a section of the museum that chronicles the way Swedes lived for 300 years. Displays of dining rooms, bedrooms and kitchens over the years. When we got to the 1960's exhibit, it was our living room in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1966. The furniture, lamps and wall coverings were our things...we... More

Lots of interesting exhibitions--make sure you see the glasswork and interior design pieces. Useful as a overview of Swedish history, too.

for art lovers, this is the number one attraction in Stockholm and is one of the world's top museums, comprising an international collection of old masters paintings including Scandinavian art by masters such as Carl Larsson.

Lots of great art, Rembrandt, Goya, French baroque painters etc. Also statues, icons, furniture, porcelain, design. Permanent and exhibitions. Unfortunately it will close for four years in just a month time, so hurry! I guess they will find some sort of temporary site but I'm not sure.

A beautiful old building which houses a decent year round collection and has regular outstanding exhibitions. A really good experience for culture lovers. Has a good coffee shop/restaurant so a nice place to spend an afternoon.
