  • Just, modern and fresh museum with photo exhibitions with depth. I was there with the expo Irving Penn and Like a Horse. Spacious, enough picture and in addition, a lot of variety of materials. Just as much fun to visit as FOAM (fotografiemuseum Amsterdam). Price is also more than worth it.

  • If you like photography you will enjoy this place. The building is stunning. The photographic exhibitions are first rate. There is a bar and restaurant on the top floor with stunning views of Stockholm. The photography is beautifully presented and the place is open til 1 am. The gift shop is also nice.
  • A favourite place! Absolute top class when it comes to food, drinks and art. Enjoy a drink with fresh ingredients (matching alcohol "on the side") after a walk through the gallery or a great tasting dinner to a fair price with a magnificent view over Stockholm. The restaurant serves brunch but it´s sadly no where near what you should expect from this place. Avoid it and go here for dinner instead. Usually a very very very high standard when it comes to the art and exhibitions. Always something for everyone - even if you are not big on art. Their gift shop must be one of the worlds best in my opinion.
  • The museum is located in a very nice brick building. They always have different great exhibitions during the year. After you have seen all the exhibitions a great cafe is waiting for you with a nice view over the water. We are going there every second month.
  • We saw three exhibitions. Like a horse was a little abusive to horses and forcefully SJW. Desperate trying of demeaning men while managing to be racist at the same time (see horses with human hair pics - the black one has braids?) Irving Penn was great. Amazing detail and composition for his time, and pics way better than modern ones today from other artists. Good themes too, especially the "common man" one where different professions are presented. The same new pet was more an Engadget post than exhibition. Confluence was just trash. Okay photos ruined by childish doodling and scratching in an attempt to imitate art. The view at the top is stunning and well worth a sit down after browsing the exhibitions for a discussion.
  • Great galleries and exhibitions. Museum shop and restaurant with a great view of the water. Free lockers for luggage available downstairs. You need to pay entrance fee for access to restaurant, toilets and lockers.
