The Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts was established in 1775. It promotes the fine arts through grants and exhibitions in its main exhibition hall at Fredsgatan 12. The entrance is free.

The building, especially the main hall with a staircase and numerous sculptures, is stunning.

Upstairs you can find a cafe and temporary exhibitions that were extremely minimalist on our visit.

Royal academy for fine arts in Stockholm is a nice place to visit even if you have limited time. It's only a 10 minute walk from the central station, shopping and the castle. They have a nice coffee shop with great views of the building and some of the collection. There is normally at least 4 main exhibitions in the building by excellent artists. Well worth an hour of your time.

Not to be confused with the National Art Museum which was not open when I was here this museum is a special venue on its own. It was founded in 1773 by King Gustav III, is one of the Royal Academies in Sweden. The Academy is an independent organization, which acts to promote painting, sculpting, building and the other visual arts. This is a small but impressive collection. When I was there they had a show on "the Artist". Mix of Swedish and International Paintings.

This place is really not worth the visit. There are some artist spaces, which are not open to public, and coffee store, which overlooks the sculpture foyer. Then there were some random paintings and modern art pieces, which were not that impressive.

We visited this museum as the National Museum was going through a renovation during our visit to Stockholm and I tried to find something interesting to see. However, this was really not a good choice.

The limited selection from the currently closed Nationalmuseum is impressive, and worth the visit and the rather steep 100 kr price of admission. However, it's over too fast. The sculptures in the entrance hall are also impressive, so if you're not willing to pay to see the paintings you could stop in just to look at those.

This is an unfortunate name for the gallery.
One exhibit was someone selling paintings, another looked like the first exercise of a sick film student.
There is a reason no one was there.
Interesting old building for art that needs a curator.

The National Musuem is closed for refurbishment currently, and to compensate 100 great paintings from there are on display at this Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Entrance costs each adult SEK 100. The paintings are diverse and interesting, with a Rembrant self-portrait, serval Renoirs, etc. it was good to walk round these paintings, all in a single gallery (with two smaller rooms either end), but they aren't a scratch on the collection at, say, the National Gallery in London, where entry is free - for now at least. We decided to visit one gallery in Stockholm. I think I would have chosen the Maritime Museum as our hotel receptionist recommended.
