  • I love going there already been there few times ,let me put it this way , if you like photography and passionate about it then you will like to visit this place 
  • I love traveling, discovering new cities and different architectures, but museums generally happening me above, it takes me 15 minutes, and it's good... To be serious, the Fotografiska is really worth, first you are welcomed (well ok it is touristy so they best time of neat their image of the beginning) but increasingly don't bother not throughout the visit... a beautiful exhibition beyond photography... I liked a lot and I strongly advice!

  • Always interesting, great opening hours, fantastic view from the café/restaurant. Great activity for rainy & cold days!

  • 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.
