Museums in Stockholm



Sigrid Hjertén. Self portraitt, 1914 at  Prins Eugens Waldermarsudde.
Photographer: Andreas Nilsson / Malmö KonstmuseumDid you know that, with around 80 museums and attractions, Stockholm is one of the cities in the world with the highest museum per capita ratios" Good news for visitors! And there really is a museum for every interest... museums covering the usual subjects of art, history, nature, culture and technology but even more specific interests like stamps, dance, toys, sports, police and silk weaving.
The Vasa Ship at the Vasa Museum
Photographer: Yanan Li/mediabank.visitstockholm.com/I often write about art museums in this blog, mainly because they have new exhibitions to visit every season while other museums have more permanent exhibitions. You can see a list of the top art museums by clicking here and reading a recent article I wrote about this season's art exhibitions. We have museums dedicated to modern and classic art as well as photography and sculpture. A few of the museums contain private art collections which are great places to see the work of Scandinavian Masters.

Photographer: Alexis Daflos, Kungl Hovstaterna Museums covering history as well as historical attractions (palaces, cathedrals) are some of the most popular points of interest for visitors to Stockholm. For example, three of the most popular attractions are the Vasa Museum, the Royal Palace and Skansen. The Vasa and Skansen are especially unique and shouldn't be missed. Click here for a full list of history based museums and attractions... Swedish history as well as royal family, military, medieval, city, maritime and Jewish history.

You can visit the Nobel Center and learn all about Alfred Nobel and how he invented dynamite and started the Nobel Prizes. The Swedish super group ABBA, of course, have a museum dedicated to them called ABBA the Museum. Swedish playwright and novelist August Strindberg has his own museum, located in his former home. You can also visit the Swedish sculptor Carl Milles' home and studio (and fantastic sculpture garden) at Millesgården.
Reliving pop music history at ABBA the MuseumYou might want to broaden your horizons further while visiting Stockholm and learn about other cultures. Not a problem!
