The art and sculpture part of the National Museum is fantastic (top floor). There is a wide variety of paintings and sculptures from both Swedish artists and non-Swedish artists. However, I did not enjoy at all the lower floor, which was the Swedish Design Seciton....More

I loved this museum, although the fact that it only opens at 11 could be problematic if you don't have much time in the city. The entrance hall features some amazing frescoes by Carl Larsson, and the first floor contains a fascinating walk through Swedish...More

A lovely modern art museum, worth a visit. It's not a huge collection, but still plenty to see with a selection from 1900 - 1970 (with the usual attractions pf Matisse, Warhol etc to keep you entertained). The building itself is a really pleasant space...More

Norrmalm is Stockholm’s most central and busiest
