This place is a slog from the tram stop, but it is a pleasant walk and the scenery is pleasant. They had a special exhibition about an artists colony involving a lot of work by William Blair Bruce, a Canadian I had barely heard of. The incorporation of the house of an active painter and "connector" of Swedes was well done - they even had a dinner setting laid out at a single historic date. The art, which spanned several periods, was well curated and they had some nice movies as well to provide context. A fine tribute to the artist and his love of Stockholm.

Walked to the museum on Djurgården from our central Stockholm hotel. Lovely walk. Chose this as the weather forecast suggested rain.

What a surprise we had. There was a great exhibition in the purpose built gallery alongside the house, cleverly linked below ground so the house wasn’t messed up. The exhibition was “Grez-sur-Loing – Art and Relations” and related to Swedish, Scandinavian and Anglo Saxon artists who had gathered in the town for their art. There are some great paintings and sculptures on show. The gallery is a great space and the works are well presented.

The house contains superbly presented private rooms on the ground floor. Art by Prins Eugen is exhibited here alongside others. Some of the rooms offer great views over the water to the centre of Stockholm, some views would have been even better if there hadn’t been 4 cruise ships moored in view!

The upper floors are where a very wide range of mainly Scandinavian paintings are hung. There are many different styles on view including those of Nordic modernists and cubists, and contemporary art.

Had extremely good food here at lunchtime.

Gardens and parkland around the museum are delightful.

Prints Eugen is little known outside Sweden and that is an enormous shame. Look up "The Cloud" ("Molnet" in Swedish) for a sample. There is a permanent exhibition of his work, but always another exhibition running concurrently. I have seen several of the highest merit. This time, it was Julia Beck, probably the best known of the small school of Swedish impressionists, although again suffering from a leak of exposure outside Sweden. This gallery is well run, with a lovely atmosphere and in an idyllic setting. Don't miss it, art lovers and you can take in the nearby Thielska Galleriet as well.

Given good weather we wanted to be outdoors more than in, so opted to visit this art gallery which has nice waterside gardens. On arrival we opted to have lunch in the garden cafe first, which was good. As with all art galleries, it's a matter of personal taste but there were some fine watercolours on the ground floor and some excellent sculptures also. From a personal perspective I didn't much like the work on other floors. This was Prince Eugen's home as well, and some of the palace rooms are very attractive indeed. You can get there by bus from the city centre or a combination of ferry and bus and I guess, if you wish, you could cycle there. From here you can walk further round the peninsular beside the sea. We got as far as Blockhaus, where there is a nice cafe. Then the bus back to central Stockholm
