This museum had been on my bucket list for at least 30 years. The Carl Larsson murals are well-known and revered. They weren't what I expected but they were lovely to see.

There is other art most worthy of a quick view but the museum is rather outdated and dreary. Art collection that was on view was not impressive except for the Swedish collection.

The staff was very helpful, especially the man in the gift shop who crafted a long tube for a poster which I had purchased. Creative problem-solving and much kindness!

Bookstore had a lot of publications but very little in English, even translations of primary Swedish artists. Only one Carl Larsson book which I already own. I was disappointed in this aspect of the museum.

The cafe' was superb! We managed to get in on the end of the lunch menu and found yummy, yummy food. Self-service.

The museum will be closed in March 2013 for 3 years for a complete renovation. It is much needed.

On our recent trip to Stockholm, we visited about 15 museums (get the Stockholm Card). This was one of the very best and I would recommend it as a must do location for any Stockholm visitor. The other place you MUST go is the Vasa Museum.

It looks the part but just wasn't that interesting. It's an art gallery so has art, which will interest the serious art buff but if you just like looking at art then I wouldn't bother.

Part of the "next round" of sights to probe a bit deeper after the obvious tourist circuit. Interesting art that shows the ways that Sweden has long been European and long not exactly European.

The collection is not a lot, but is interesting enough. You can take a very close look (compared to thick glasses and footlines in some other museums) to most works. One thing that is quite disappointing is that I intended to see some Hammershoi paintings which were taken away for preparation of some upcoming exhibitions.

There is a canteen inside Museum which serves fairly good quality food.
