It was sardine-packed when I entered the gallery of ladies' fashion on the ground floor of this museum. All the female patrons wanted to have a closer look at the exquisite dresses. Likewise, I was enthralled by them. Soon, my attention span dwindled and I moved onto other floors. Second floor was of furniture and home decorations and they were very well-curated. Third floor was of large Buddhist idols and Japanese art. It was interesting but rather unmemorable.

Spent a couple hours here because we had free entry with a ticket we had bought earlier to another museum. If you enjoy Scandinavian design ( do!) you will like this museum. I particularly enjoyed the furniture and household exhibits. Definitely more interesting to adults than children, although there is a children's play room. Cafe looked nice.

I have traveled to Sweden several times in the last few years and visit the Rohsska Museet each time. There is always a great exhibit going on and their permanent collection is really cool. A must see!
