  • Mustsee in Stockholm! Awesome Anton Corbijn exposition with personal notes from Corbijn himself. Museum shop also highly recommended, with beautiful coffee table books, postcards and small gadgets 
  • We had not planned for a morning and chose to go here. We were pleasantly surprised because it was the recently opened exhibition of photographer who lived near rock o pop in several years. We also chose to eat here, you can plan accordingly and there was everything from coffee o coffee to prepared meals and beer/wine.

  • When we first visited the fotografiska we were pointed out friendly entrance only with credit card and also the Museum Shop only can be paid. For students who so some do not have makes the entry nearly impossible! Only through the purchase of the Stockholm pass at the tourist info, we could visit the Fotografiska, that is unfortunately very small. The exhibitions was still very nice.

  • The exhibitions are very good but the museum is too small to warrant the time or expense. It's two floors with almost no print or explanations to accompany the otherwise stunning photos. I grew bored at the two videos within minutes. If you pair this museum with another - a business idea they should adopt - then you've got a nice afternoon. But none are in the immediate vicinity. Notably, the cafe on the top floor (where I said, "Seriously? That's it?") has excellent food and a compelling view of Saltsjon and Djurharden.
  • The exhibitions are OK. Probably not really my kind of museum. The 3 stars comes from the excellent cafe on the top floor. Great food and drink combined with excellent views of the city. My advice is skip the museum and got straight to the cafe!
  • Such a wonderful place! I have been to Fotografiska Museum for 5 times and each time I go there it still is wonderful . If you do appreciate art and photography , you can spend half a day in the museum. There is a nice cafe/restaurant in the last floor too with an amazing view of part of Stockholm city :)
  • One of my favorite museums in Stockholm. Great exhibitions, frequently updated. The Fotografiska store is full of beautiful prints and great books about photography, design etc. Also, you can have really good food with a beautiful view of the city. Restaurant is quite pricey and you have to book a table well in advance. The museum itself is usually full of people, especially during weekends.
  • Since the contents of the museum is continuously changing, there is no point in describing it. Whether you like or not, depends greatly on what is shown. The building is great though. The artwork is greatly displayed in slightly dark rooms. The pictures are of course well lit which creates a cozy vibe. If you're going there, make sure to go slightly hungry. The restaurant is extraordinary. DJ, awesome view of the lake and Gamla Stan and of course great food. Make at least a fika ;)
