The Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities, Stockholm, Sweden. It is a public museum launched by Sweden's Parliament in 1926, with the Swedish archaeologist Johan Gunnar Andersson as founding director. The museum was originally based mainly on Andersson's groundbreaking discoveries in China, during the 1920s, of a hitherto unknown East Asian prehistory. The museum today has wide-ranging collections and exhibits of Asian archeology, classical arts, and culture, and a large Asia research library open to the public. The last time the museum published a comprehensive catalog was 1963 . The museum also publishes an annual journal focused on research on ancient East Asia, the Bulletin of the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities.The museum is located on Skeppsholmen in the building Tyghuset.

  • Should be located next to the Museum of modern art museum. In why to Stockholm and I wondered. Exhibited in China, Japan, India, Korea, China has exhibited in chronological, which offers 1. Japan, Edo period, India, miniature paintings, Korea? Despite free admission not as popular, people are so low you can see slowly your heart's content

  • One of the most underrated museums in Stockholm. The arrangement of artifacts regarding Chinese history is next level. The description is written in both Swedish and English. I could walk in this place for half a day. Also the interactive section for kids is really interesting. Very good in overall.
  • Nice museum with many varying and interesting objects. The korean part is a little sparse but the chinese objects weight up for it. Apparently it is the largest collection of chinese 'pre-historic' pottery in the world, outside of China? Small café but pleasant, good green tea but amazing (!) jasmin tea! We would love to come here again.
  • Great exhibition pieces but the collection in each section is pretty small. Difficult to dwell for more than half an hour.
  • Free entry, and great value for money :) First floor has an extensive collection of Chinese artefacts from the Bronze Age onward, and an exhibition showing the history of China's written word. Second floor has some religious sculptures, Japanese and Korean exhibits. There's a shop selling souvenirs, replicas and historically-inspired items, and a really nice touch was that the receipts included historical background customised to the items you bought (although only in Swedish).
  • I wish the museum had more exhibitions and objects from Japan, because currently they seem to have plenty of chinese pots of all ages. It's nice but it didn't make me want to go back there too soon.
