We visited the Museum to see art. However, in somes ways the best part was the fish soup. It was creamy, spicy, and full of salmon and shrimps and a huge serving. We try a fish soup in just about every place we visit and...More

The museum is closing in September and the collection is being moved to a new building. The building is a treat - lots of detail. As for current exhibitions - the photography was very interesting and the explanations of the evolution of portraits and documentary...More

Entering the former bank building, built in 1901-06 to designs of Ingvar O. Hjorth, is a strange sensation. One minute there is light, the next it has faded into darkness - and so it goes on over and over again. This is very odd in...More

As I am not the art person it was for me okay to see the pictures, paintings and similar things. It is a nice museum with some limited exhibitions in addition.

As I have said many times in my reviews here, modern art is as good or bad as the space where it is displayed and exhibited. In some cases (Guggenheim, Neues, Kiasma, Kumu) the building and the space itself becomes art and enhances the exhibits....More
