  • Indeed, to be at the Restaurant overlooking the sea, it is fine, and to enjoy several very beautiful exhibition haller, in something I constantly crave. All seasons are at their peak there, so beautiful, so peaceful and inspiring. and you get to enjoy the great exhibitions that now, finally, yesterday, Andy Warhol, It was the last exhibition day today, but many more others during the year. Then you can eat well, out or within the House, and shop for unique items in the store. You will like I crave there again!

  • As Värmdöbo, it feels great to be able to say that we have a gallery of very high class in Värmdö municipality! Today has been on their Andy Warholutställning as kav a very good picture of this art icon. Well proportioned and attractive premises inbättat in Värmdö archipelago environment with Baggenfjärden that spreads out as an essential part of the view from the Restaurant. It has also a shop where you can buy art-based books and other objects, but also food and crafts from the House. When we are looking at the area of food, there are several options of restaurants in the House, where the Bådan Buffet & Cafe is located on the 2nd floor. It means ' to it is on the main plans together. Shop. Go to rather than going upstairs, there is a fine restaurant where you book a table and served a little more exclusive meal than the outdoors in the same plane. Where is the grill that then serves Burgers and accessories. Around this magnificent building is a always clean walk down toward the water, where you can stop and just enjoy the Baggensfjäden often have activities which races URo.dyl.. This is really a visit that gives a sense of the archipelago combined with culture and if you want good food!

  • Situated in the outskirts of Stockholm, Artipelag is a beautiful building in a beautiful place. The entrance fee to the exhibitions is quite high, 150 SEK, but it is often worth it. Of course, you can...  read more »
  • Great for a halfday trip out of Stockholm. The biggest piece of Art is the building and how its subtly nested into the beautiful nature of the archipelago. There's also a truly gorgeous roundway path that makes for great 45min walks through the archipelago forest around the museum. Sprinkled with art every now and then. Oh yeah, the museum's restaurant is pretty good too.
  • Artipelag is a stunning building, a delicious cafe and a great exhibition space in Stockholm's archipelago. If you are interested in art or architecture, or just like nature, you should definitely visit Artipelag. I was lucky that the girlfriend of my Airbnb host was an art student, otherwise I would probably never have known about this gallery. Artipelag is located perhaps an hour away from central Stockholm in the archipelago. And yes, it is a bit of a pain to get there, but there is a bus stop right in front of the building. However, I took a bus from Slussen and instead of waiting and changing to a different bus, I simply got off somewhere and walked the last leg. It took me ages, but the last bit was enjoyable, as they built a little path through the forest. To be honest, I found the building and the permanent exhibition more impressive than the temporary exhibition. The building is huge and beautiful. It reminded me a lot of Arken Museum of Modern Art near Copenhagen, however when I sent Artipelag an email and asked about it, they seemed surprised, so I guess if anything, only the architect was inspired by Arken. The light building is dominated by clear lines and simple colours, mostly white, grey and black. I found the large-scale photographs, beautiful nature shots, that were commissioned specifically for the building, most fascinating. When I was there, the temporary exhibition was called "Land meets water – European and American photography from 1860 to the present". I liked it, there were some great photos. Still, the permanent photographs of the surrounding area were the highlight for me - maybe mostly because I lived in Stockholm for a few months a couple of years ago. For me, the museum itself is a work of art and I very much enjoyed the time I spent at Artipelag. Whether you check out the exhibitions, just sit in a corner to read or treat yourself to the delicious food at their cafe - I found that being exposed to this architecture, the aesthetics and the calm atmosphere was kind of mesmerising. While it took me two hours or so to get there, I took the bus from the building on the way back to Stockholm and with one interchange arrived at Slussen within only 40 minutes. If you like architecture, nature, or photography, Artipelag, "an international venue for art, good food, events and activities", as they describe themselves, is a place you should not miss when in Stockholm.
  • Visited for the second time. The surroundings are beautiful when the weather is sunny. We ordered two cappuccinos but received abysmal service. The barista seemed very stressed and did not put any love in making the coffee. To her defense she had an unpleasant customer before us. Still, expected more.
  • A very cool and modern building with lots of exhibitions and beautiful walks along the water. It's tricky to get here, but SL bus no. 468 goes here from Gustavsberg.
  • Must go area near Stockholm. Beautiful museum in the forest. Very nice and neat architecture. You can spend your whole day here enjoying the nature and the exhibition. Truly beautiful space. :)
