“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

A very fascinating museum. At the time I visited they were exhibiting Secret Love which depicted the taboos surrounding homosexuality in China. It was eye opening, raw and at times heart breaking. But very, very fascinating and some fantastic art pieces are displayed in this exhibit. Also interested was their Day In The World exhibition, though there seemed to be far too many pics from the USA. I would devote 2-3 hours at the museum and there is also a lovely cafe/restaurant should you wish to have lunch there too. I thought the entrance was a bit pricey (100SEK including entry to Hidden Love) but hey thats Scandinavia I suppose.

“Museum of the world culture”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

“2 great exhibits running now”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Secret Love- multimedia exploration of LGBT & One World- world photographs taken on one day- are well worth a visit. Buffet lunch at the cafe was delicious and affordable.

“Very interesting modern museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

It's a very modern museum and the people behind it seem to have a very open mind. They exhibitions rotate constantly and there is a very interesting permanent collection. Many events, parties, concerts, lectures are being held there.. I visited the museum 4-5 times in 2 years. On Wednesdays it's open till late and I think admission is free :)

“Interesting concept”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

A Museum of World Culture sounds very interesting concept and when I came there they were opening a very interesting exhibition on secret - gay - love in China, which I would have loved to see. They seem to mostly set up up interesting temporary exhibitions, both travelling and original exhibitions.

The house itself is uninviting and looks looks. The middle very spacious and not put to much use.

But the staff was friendly and the Museum is well worth a visit.
