    The exposition gives a nice overview of the architectural history of Sweden. It is a rather small collection that takes no more than an hour to visit. Admission is free.  more »

    As a small section in the modern Museum, the Museum of architecture, architects must see for a museum that is required. The famous Austrian architect Josef Frank's works of the section. Models of his buildings projects and beautifully on display. In addition, the artist exhibited his furniture designs here.

  • For those interested in architecture, this is a nice enough place to visit. There's descriptions of Swedish architectural history and development, miniature models of both houses that were built, and that weren't, and some other tidbits of knowledge. Free entrance, but the exhibit is small. It shares locale with the Modern Museum, so you can stroll from ArkDes to there, without leaving the building.
  • Really interesting exhibition on housing affordability and availability. Also, a gingerbread house competition! I didn't think I'd be very interested, but it really surprised me. And it's free. It's in the same building as the Modern Museet (modern art gallery)
  • ArkDes: Great for anyone interested in buildings, typography, shapes, design, materials, – has a great public library too.
  • Great collection of art and a really cool store. The audioguide you can download on your smartphone gives you important information about many pieces.
  • The free exhibition was very poor exhibition; junk, it is very hard to understand due to a bad expo design, especially for the sweden home crisis expo which was overloaded and not well presented/divided. I would not recommend. Plus, i was surprised they were showing contemporary art instead of design/architecture
