“Small museum without any crowds”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

I stumbled across this museum when I got off the ferry at the wrong stop. Get the ferry to Djurgarden from Gamla Stan and it only takes 10 minutes to get to the island of Skeppsholmen. The museum is located here. It was not the kind of museum I expected to find in Stockholm. There were some very interesting exhibits from all over Asia and they have temporary exhibitions changing all the time. You can combine this with a walk around the island and a view back to Stockholm from the water.

“Quite OK, but not on top of my list”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

I really liked the temporary Exhibition 'Hidden Love', besides that I found the museum quite boring. It is what it says - a museum of antiquities. Not quite to my taste. The café was sterile, but had nice pastry and soda drinks...

“Somewhat limited”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

The East Asiatic Museum is lodged in the old Navy Armory on Ship Island. It's a long building with focus on China from the earliest days until ca 1900. The latter centuries mainly consist of china traded to Sweden by the East India Company in the 18th century. The earlier ones show a lot of fantastic grave figurines, some of them very large and painted. There is a very small (new) Korea collection and a larger one with Japanese objects, e.g. some nice wood prints. Apart from this there are temporary exhibitions, the one running now is about gay/transsexual life and problems in China. There is a small restaurant.
