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There is other art most worthy of a quick view but the museum is rather outdated and dreary.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.
