This is a specialized, niche museum and many times these types of museums are every intimate and interesting because they tend to be very focused on the specific theme (eg the Fotofgrafiska). However, this museum was generally disappointing. There was a lot of promise, but the collection and the displays are very limited and give just a cursory view into... More

And a small store with music, dance videos and swedish handmade handicraft. I have been working as a travel guide and do know how important just local... More

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!

This small museum has a diverse and interesting permanent collection presented in a rather unique way. It is an unpredictable experience as it is a very personal collection and presented in a variety of ways. Abide all the place celebrates dance and includes some wonderfull dance footage. The temporary exhibition I saw of paper costume sand large format photography was... More

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!
