When I went Ruud van Empel, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Anna Clarén were featured. I really enjoyed Ruud van Empel's exhibit- the video about the photographer really helped explain his works and the exhibit was nicely set-up. The other two exhibits were okay, but didn't really hold my attention. If the photographers on exhibit intrigue you, Fotografiska is a great venue to explore their works.
Bonus: Upstairs is a great cafe with cardamom buns, delicious salads, friendly service and a great view.

The artwork may not be to your taste, but there is no denying it is conversation starting and interesting. Make sure to stop on the top floor for a coffee or beverage and take in the wonderful view while lounging on the many chairs or sofas.

As other reviewers mentioned, the exhibits and cafe are very worthwhile. The high quality of presentation (sequencing, annotation, lighting) enhanced my experience. (If walking to the museum, approach via the harbor side of Stadsgarden.)

Loved it, great place to visit. Exhibitions change regularly so worth checking what is on first though

This museum is amazing. From the brick building right by the water, to the awesome cafe with live music at times, and the cool store with super interesting items there. This place has it all. The exhibitions were very inspiring and made me want to take even more pictures of this amazing city. The museum also makes use of the space in the building by having art exhibited around the walls on the stairs from floor to floor. They have a rich collection in a space that is not overwhelming. And the cafe has great food! I had a chocolate dessert with raspberry sauce that was out of this world! Also, the day I visited the museum, there was a live band playing there and we just sat down to listen to good music, enjoying a great view after visiting a museum that was one of the highlights of the trip.
