What a terrific museum, covered everything Sweden past and present! We spent quite a bit of time at the Nordiska Museet, there was just so much to see. The building itself is amazing, looks like an old castle. Not sure about the admission fee as it was included with our Stockholm card. Admission includes an audio guide with headphones which... More

The place holds some of the best insights into the whole tradition and culture of Sweden and there are sections that is devoted to historic pages to those to the modern ones including the styles and development of various homes around the country and the fashion as well. The ticket covers for the audio tour as well and the information... More

This museum should be on your list. The building is like a palace or church but was built for the museum. Although called a Nordic Museum, it is just about Sweden. The audio guide is included in the price. The fashion and furniture displays were interesting. And I enjoyed learning about the Sami people. The recreated rooms from different periods... More

This museum gave us the in-depth insight into what Sweden was like years ago. The collection was excellent, people friendly and helpful. We liked the audio guide which was for free and the furniture plus cloths collection was excellent. The table layouts over the many years was also interesting for us. Very close to the Vasa museum so do this... More

I love art and folk museums. I took a long walk from my hotel in the city center to the museum, some 40 minutes I think. That was February (last year not this year). A walk along the marina with seabirds soaring under the snowy sky was refreshing, but I believe in summer it would be more lovely. I would... More

We visited this museum on the weekend of the Mid-summer's Eve holiday. I have given it a low rating because of the completely dark galleries for the tablesetting and the clothing galleries which I had been looking forward to seeing. Without a flashlight to spotlight each display case it would have been simply impossible to see anything of those galleries.... More

First, the building itself is worth seeing on its own. The museum had a lot if interesting pieces in it. A lot of the museum had clothing and furniture which wasn't all that exciting. I would recommend this museum however as the building is old and has it's own history. They hand out headsets that give descriptions of most, if... More
