I love photography and do not like museums (in general) so don't be put off by the fact they call it a museum. It is modern gallery and the organizers put a lot of thought and effort into the combination of the artists they showcase. Except for the current exhibit, which is comprised only of Swedish photographers, the other times I have gone it has been a great way to experience the main show, often of a well-known photographer, as well as other unknown, thought provoking, or controversial photographer's work.
There are great views from the cafe on the upper floor, and the coffee and cakes are good, although I would not eat lunch there as it is not good value for money (have a dagenslunch elsewhere). One drawback is it is quite a walk from Slussen (about 10 minutes) and it can be confusing to get out of Slussen and cross the street. It is easier to walk from Gamla Stan in some ways (look on the map), unless you are traveling with people with mobility issues, and then taking a cab is an option.
Fotografiska's opening hours and days are excellent and except for two days a year (I believe) they are open all year round. I highly recommend the walk from Slussen. And if you have the energy, cross the street, go up the stairs and have food at Hermann's.
