  • This is a very good conversion of a redundant dockside building into a contemporary photographic museum. The three exhibitions on offer when we visited were diverse and thought-provoking ... but perha...  more »

  • Incredible collection. I think anyone can enjoy this museum, and if you have a specific interest in photography it’s a must see! It’s laid out well and the prints are such high quality. They are really nice to look at. There is also a bar / cafe on the top floor that has a beautiful view over the water. A great place to sit down and grab a beer after seeing all the photographs
  • This was a really wonderful gallery, 4 exhibits were there when I went, all displayed beautifully. The museum has a basement floor with free lockers for small suitcases, coats and bags. Nice toilets and an amazing view from the organic cafe in the top floor which sold lovely cake and drinks. There is a full restaurant up there two which looked lovely but I didn't have time to try.
  • Nice museum about photography in the south of Stockholm. Definitely worth visiting if you appreciate the art of photography. The entrance is not too expensive for what’s displayed, there is also a roof top of you want to have a nice view of the Swedish capital. Exhibitions change time to time but the ones exposed while I visited the Fotografiska museum were really interesting
  • Great place to visit, especially if you are feeling the obligation to do something cultural but museums aren't really your thing! We saw some really interesting, culturally relevant and thought-provoking exhibitions when we visited. Watch out for the cafe though - it is quite hipster - nothing particularly 'mainstream' to eat unless you go to the more formal buffet/restaurant area.
  • Auccessfully, that the museum is open until 11 pm. The best way to plan a trip here when it gets dark - after all, in the end you will understand why so. Photos are present on different subjects - very beautiful and you can admire them very long. On the last floor there is a restaurant / bar with a panoramic view of the city and the strait. For the sake of this, it is worthwhile to stop in the bar, take a glass of wine and enjoy the view of the city. At the museum's shop you can choose the full-length posters of many photographs from the museum.
