Is a nice place to see great photographic exhibitions, and to learn more about photography, there is a nice book store with many titles, also you can join a meal in the restaurant, very close to the Slussen Station.

Charming location with amazing view. The exhibitions are very interesting and educational. The historical building with modern new design makes you want to hang around a little bit longer. Don't forget to at least have a cup of coffee or tea at the cafe and enjoy the outstanding harbor view there. Highly recommended!

Really worth a visit, there were some varied exhibitions on display and somewhere people of all ages can enjoy. Something we weren't aware of before we arrived is the tickets can only be purchased on card - as its cashless. Wasn't a problem for us, but something to be aware of if you are thinking of visiting. There's also a... More

Nice place to stroll around and watch great art. They also have a superb restaurant! And they change the gallery pretty often so you can visit it many times.

This is the largest and best photography museum I have seen. It has the longest opening hours (11am-11pm weekdays, 11am-1am weekends!), and the large exhibition space allows several large projects at any time. The display we enjoyed most was of the Greta Garbo movies, which also featured extra comfortable seats, so we spent a long time there; most other displays... More

Maybe too much expectation.. called "museum" is not really place for. It is better just photo gallery instead of "museum" It was ok. But not strongly recommend to visit though. One thing really you should visit at 3rd floor had restaurant has fantastic view over the Stockholm. So you can have lunch there. You can go directly upstairs restaurant to... More

This exhibition's highlight is the section on Greta Garbo which was very well done and informative. Other sections were also very good but the section where photos of British soldiers who had been severely wounded in Iraq/Afghanistan was very moving and poignant. The whole exist ion was well laid out and easy to navigate. Having a very good cafe and... More

There is no doubt that Fotografiska is one of the more unique things to do in Stockholm, but since it has no permanent galleries, one's experience varies. This certainly adds a unique, evergreen element for Stockholmers, but it makes the experience for tourists somewhat subjective. That said, this gallery is still quite impressive. We went when there were a variety... More

A lovely old building on the outside and a modern photography exhibition space on the inside. Lovely exhibitions, obviously but also very attractive display spaces which showed large work to very good effect, over 3 floors. There is a restaurant and a shop and nice views of Stockholm.
