  • The Modern Museum in Stockholm is, to use the retiring chief intendent Daniel Birnbaum’s own words: “It’s one of the paradigmatic modernist museums. Certainly, with all its shortcomings: Western focus...  more »

  • Nice facility with interesting art, but personally, I would say it’s not for me. Quite abstract. There’s the free exhibition, which is the permanent exhibition, and also the paid one. I went to the free one so I’m not sure how the other one was. They had lockers to store your stuff.
  • To us it’s the best museum in Stockholm (without National museum, which was closed for renovation during our stay there). Free admission to permanent collections, good quality and large quantities of collections featuring Matisse, Modgliani, Picasso and so on. Spacious and quiet. Staff was very helpful and considerate.
  • Great modern art collection. Free access to the permanent collection. We had a very nice buffet lunch at the restaurant.
  • Would highly recommend as a must see museum in Stockholm if one is into Art Museums. Can spend a lot of time here and I enjoyed walking around at my leisure. There is audio guides available which I would also recommend. Note to travellers, you cannot bring bags/backpacks into the museum. If you do they must be held in your hands, by your side or worn on the front of your body. There is also a closet area as soon as you walk in where you are welcome to leave your coats and bags.
  • My adventures always include local museums no matter if they're good or bad. In this case Moderna Museet is good. Very good, and you'll enjoy every moment as well. The normal exhibits are free to view. They also contain special exhibits which cost money to view. I recommend paying for one special exhibit along with seeing the free one. Walking around the museum outside is also a treat. You'll find sculptures and views. Don't pass this up while in Stockholm.
