As I was very interested in dance, I made it a must to visit this museum and it did not disappoint me. On entering, you arrive to a huge space which to me represent a dance stage with ongoing snippets of films/ dance/ performances on a screen. The collections of Mr. Rolf de Mare were amazing! The displays from all... More

On Drottninggatan between Sergels torg and Parliament you find a small but interesting museum dedicated to dance. I especially enjoyed the room with 20+ miniature replicas of scene from a ballet performance. Under each little display is a a drawer and when pulled out music from the performance is heard. The theme of the museum is definitely dance, but I... More

This is a very nice and good museum located in a beautiful building, with a lot of historical peaces from the dance history. Sweden has played an important role in the history of dancing and here you get to see it!

Hedvig, a friendly jeweller in Sodermalm (check out Smide och Form, Hornsgatan 36), recommended we visit the exhibition at the Dansmuseet, of dance costumes made of paper. It was well worth it, as was the rest of this small museum. One does not have to be a dance fanatic to enjoy it, small children seem to enjoy it too. Spend... More

If you're not a dancer, this little gem of a museum will leave you cold - but if you love the history of dance, you'll be enchanted by the chance to see a sculpture of Anna Pavlova's foot, original costumes from the Ballets Russes and more. And it's free too!

The highlight of this museum is undoubtedly the costumes from the Ballets Russes. Having seen documentaries & archival film of the Ballets Russes, being able to see their costumes up close and personal was really great. If you are not especially interested in dance or the Ballets Russes, you might want to keep walking...
