Every room has a colour and a mix of things that gives you a feeling of looking into someones home. I love the jugend pieces. John Bauer and Elsa Beskow paintings are just lovely! Free entrance, you have to see this.

Firstly, the building is great to look at, especially the stairs but other rooms have their loveliness too. Great range of exhibits and it never felt over crowded, even though it was busy. Well worth at least a few hours of anyone's time.

This museum was fantastic and we just loved all the period pieces available to be seen. The price of admission can't be beat either- FREE. You can get an audio guide on your iPhone or you can stroll along and gaze at some incredible works...More

Let me focus on some details that other reviewers have not brought up, as far as I have seen. The audio-guide provides valuable information in a creative interview-style format, and is highly recommended. But the lanyard is hooked to the screen at the wrong end....More

Norrmalm is Stockholm’s most central and busiest
neighborhood. It’s home to the main shopping street,
Drottninggatan, and to Stockholm icons like the
Sergels Torg glass obelisk, the famous Hay Market with
its Carl Milles sculptures, and the Hötorget
Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm
postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most
traditional department stores Nordiska Kompaniet and
