Nordiska museet is an excellent building, a palace! Inside you can see and learn a lot about Sweden, mainly from 1600 and until now. They present all, what the people ate (all kinds of food), what they used to wear, their furniture, plates, forks, spoon, knifes. It' s an interesting museum. With Stockholm card is free and absolutely recommended.

The Vasa museum is so spectacular that many tourists to Djurgarden miss out on this fantastic museum of Nordic Life, history, homes, furnishings, fashion, jewellery, toys, and much much more. It is just around the corner from the Vasa, set in a beautiful, gigantic building reminiscent of a giant palace or castle. The displays inside were wonderful, and we spent... More

It worth the visit just to see the building and it's architecture . Functional and impressive. The exhibits of the museum are following the evolution of the Swedish every day life as well as the development of the Swedish culture . The Nordiska museum is situated in the same neighborhood with Skansen, Vasa museum , DJurgarden and Abba museum

Housing a history in objects of Nordic life, this museum was fascinating with sections on household furniture, fashion, jewellery, dining rituals, toys and culture.audio guides were efficient throughout and stand was right beside huge statue bearing the order to "Be Swedish". Favourite item was a temporary installation about patterns and stripes in the main foyer with additional material off to... More

Just the museum building already makes this an absolute must - the architecture and history is fascinating. The exhibits themselves change regularly and approach and expose many different aspects of Scandinavian life and taste. Really insightful!

Lots of good artifacts of Sweden past and present is presented in this museum. Admission was 100SEK which is fairly reasonable for a museum this size, and no charge for the audio headsets to walk around at your leisure, and listen to areas that interest you. I enjoyed the life of the Swede during the Midsummer festival and the displays... More

This museum had not been on my list of places to visit when in Stockholm and I only ended there because the weather was so awful and I needed to get out of the rain. Some of the displays about furniture and how people used to live were quite interesting and the audio tour was very easy to use. The... More

We wandered in this museum, not sure what to expect, and were completely blown away! They had a cool exhibit about stripes in art and artifacts. The displays of Swedish folk art were wonderful--I love this type of art, so I was very happy to see so much of it in one spot. The museum building is stunning. The gift... More

We were not actually planning to visit the Nordiska museet, but since we were close visiting Skansen and Vasa, we thought we'd drop by. I am so glad we did. I am not a real fan of museums but this one is really well organized. We took the English audio guide and we just followed the small tour on our... More
