  • Museum dedicated to modern art. There are exhibited several works of the greatest artists of the last century, with an eye to Picasso and French painters. Few works of recording artists Italians. Certainly worth a visit.

  • I've been to several arts museums and this one is not the best, but it's still good. It has a good selection of art and a nice architecture. For the person who loves art but doesn't have super high ex...  read more »
  • I have visited Stockholm several times but never have I ended up going to Moderna Museet. Well at least before this summer. My family is big friends of museums and I have seen too many in my 21 years of life. Moderna Museet went right to mu top 10 museums. Even my little brother liked it and was interested to explore. The Yayoi Kusama exhibition we went to see was bright, colorful and different in the good way. I will return here in the future.
  • Good location (easily accessible). Free admission (June 2016), as all Swedish Museums. Security lockers available for free. Good restaurant with nice view and awesome outdoor seats. Very interesting exhibitions. Truly modern!. Not too busy. Nice shop. (October 2015) I was there during the exhibition of Olafur Eliasson which featured a fan circling in an irregular orbit, water squirting up in cascades, and a labyrinthine architecture of coloured space, among many other interesting works. I shared some photos on the map. (June 2016) The exhibitions (A good home for everyone) and (The New Human) were large, well-organized, and very interesting. A must-see museum.
  • By far the best modern art museum I have visited. Whether your an expert or a neophite you will appreciate this amazing collection. Plus the way the museum is set up guides you through time for a better understanding on modern art from early 1900 to today.
  • One of the better museums for modern art I've visited. Make sure to check out the Art shop which has a great assortment of prints and other desireable objects. By the way, they have a fantastic fulfillment for online orders too. I ordered a couple of prints via online shop to Switzerland and they arrived at my door 2 days later. Neatly packed and with a handwritten note.
  • BLOWN. AWAY. One of the best modern art museums in the world, from a quality standpoint. Not a big place, but very interesting modern and contemporary exhibitions, and then you are blown away with Picssso, Léger, Warhol, Munch...and many more.
