  • Wonderfully different that a Saturday night go on photo exhibition! His stark photos of all musical Heroes was worth the trip to Stockholm.

  • The Fotografiska is a museum where are exposed photography exhibit. I visited the exhibition We Have a Dream. Spacious and suitable to host exhibitions of various kinds is definitely a museum I recommend it especially for the restaurant/bar which offers an impressive view on the Scandinavian Islands that are situated in front of sodermalm.

  • Great exhibitions with famous (but also some not so famous) photographers. If you're interested or like photography this is the place to go. But I would assume it's really great for everyone. Also a great restaurant with an amazing view that can be enjoyed with or without going to the museum first.
  • Museum which stays fresh every visit. Rotates exhibits fairly often and stays current with major discussions in the world. Will rarely make you feel good, though - but rather thoughtful. World class photographic exhibitions.
  • Photography gallery that I think appeals to people who aren't necessarily interested in the art, as it contains enough details to keep photographers happy and enough pretty pictures for those who couldn't care less. More than worth a look around for an afternoon - start with lunch in the cafe, which is delicious. Definitely not cheap though, at 120SEK for entry, and they only take card so watch out for that.
  • Great exhibits. Surprisingly nice place for a drink or meal with romantic water views.
  • Great place for locals, tourists, photographers and non-photogeeks. Great food, semi nice atmosphere but often crowded around lunch. Especially during summer.
