For some of the best views over Stockholm, bag a window table at the top-floor restaurant of Fotografiska, where the gourmet food more than matches the vista. And, of course, don’t forget to peruse the world-class photography on display across the four floors of this converted Art Nouveau customs warehouse. Instead of displaying a permanent collection, they host four large and more than 100 smaller temporary exhibits every year, so there’s always something new to view, and for those who fancy seeing their own efforts adorn the walls, there are courses and workshops to sharpen your skills behind the lens.
Stockholm’s cracking culture scene is no big secret, but the sheer breadth of it is still wildly impressive. Stockholm hasn’t just got grand history museums coming out of its ears, it’s got modern art, sculpture – and who can forget the ABBA museum?
The best museums in Stockholm come in all shapes, sizes and styles, so if you’re ready to fill up your weekend itinerary, check out the best museums in the city. From naval history to vikings, here are the museums you should be seeing in Stockholm right now.
