7-Day Scenic Scandinavian Tour from Stockholm exploring Denmark, Sweden and fjords in Norway

Denmark, Sweden, and Norway offer spectacular countryside scenery and rich local culture, but organizing accommodation and transportation to explore independently can be a challenge. On this tour, explore all three countries over seven action-packed days—with those key logistics included. Exploring in comfort by air-conditioned coach with your guide, discover must-see sites such as the Briksdal glacier, Jostedalsbreen National Park, and Mjøsa Lake.

This museum has interesting objects but needs more information to tie the objects to some meaning. The top floor is a collection of objects from Japan and China. Interesting and beautiful to look at but . . . . The next floor is a collection of silver objects but I needed some information to learn something about them. . . not just read a small tag with description. The first floor was the design exhibition. There was a sign about Bauhaus but I had a problem to understand where the objects were. I know a bit about Bauhaus and was a bit confused by the display. There was very little English in the museum. Not at all as bilingual as the City Museum. So, I would say . . . worth a visit, especially if you buy the three museum yearly card for 100 kr. but it will be looking at objects without getting much information. They have nice restrooms and a place to lock in your belongings in the lower lever. This was greatly appreciated.

We visited recently and I was really impressed with the quality of this museum. The displays are really well done and there is a fair amount of interactivity to keep younger people interested. There is lots to take in and my favourite rooms were on the top floor exhibiting Asian artefacts and also product design through the years particularly the 60’s and 70s. There is a Corbusier kitchen which was really interesting. The current exhibition on ocean plastics is very informative and thought provoking. The cafe is great, nice design, great cakes ( glutenfree and vegan options available) and good coffee. The toilets are immaculate! And the lockers and cloak room are free. The building is a joy and has been beautifully adapted to house the collection.

This is the only specialized museum of design and art crafts in Sweden, located in the very center of Gothenburg and easy to reach with a tram or by foot. Cheap entrance. On the third floor is the reinstated asian exhibition and I really estimate the Chinese part. Stay also for a cup of espresso in the café.

A small museum with a wealth of interesting articles. So fun to be reminded of items from my past--rotary telephone, early desk top computer--and to see classics of Scandinavian design.
