  • Good museum that was pleasant to walk around. I advise that you check which photographers work is being exhibited as this changes through the year. When I visited some of the exhibits didn't suit my.....  more »
  • Everything about this museum is really cool! The exposition in November 2020 was just surreal, one about darkrooms, the other about nature, and the other about American life in the 1980s. I felt the.....  more »
  • Great late night hang spot. As a tourist, it is kind of hard to find something to do during the evening between the eating and bar crawling and sleep, but if you come here you can also look at art. This is a good spot to look at interesting photography, and catch a great view of the city at night.
  • Fotografiska was one of my favorite things in Stockholm! Beautifully organized with well-designed lighting, it provides a real space to contemplate the current exhibits. It's also not overwhelmingly big (like some museums) so it's perfect for an afternoon trip.
  • Great little museum. They have a great exhibit going on right now. Erik Johannson...really cool photos put together in such a creative way. I like the movie they have showing how he does it. You could spend a couple of hours here or if you like to take your time and read everything, 3-4 hours. Nice gift shop too.
  • Good size space for exhibitions. Great building. Amazing cafe. Worth visiting if you are spending a couple of days or more in Stockholm. Will go again next time I’m near.
  • The museum was really nice but the aggressive sales in the restaurant and at the entrance, make it feel like a tourist trap. Management is not doing well by pushing this type of behaviours on their serving staff. The kitchen staff however does an amazing job! The food was good and the view from the window in the restaurant is also beautiful. I did appreciate the exposition! Jaw dropping!
