  • The museum offers a variety of exhibits, from clothing throughout the ages to ancient furniture and textiles. There are also exhibits on photography and how light has influenced the city planning and decisions. We enjoyed the exhibits on the Norther Lights the most and thought the museum was wonderfully decorated and arranged. Some of the exhibits were a little dry, but the history pieces were really interesting. The museum did an excellent job of illustrating what parts of Swedish culture were indigenous and how the country was influenced by outside cultures throughout its history.
  • A five star museum, starting with the exhibits and the free audio guides and ending up with the impressive interior and exterior architecture! A must see place in Stockholm! And after the long tour one can enjoy a good coffee at the nearby water-side terrace.
  • What an incredible exhibit. Thought provoking... 400 years of design.... replicas of rooms from 1700s to today to immerse yourself into the experience. Interesting exhibit on the Aboriginals of Sweden too.
  • Wish I had more time in this museum. I got here with just 1.5 hours before closing. My favorite exhibit was the one covering Swedish traditions. The fashion and jewelry portions were also interesting. There was a lot to see. Museum is free after 5pm Wednesdays and they're open until 8pm on Wednesdays.
  • Pretty interesting place, with nice architecture and exhibits. The kid's area are scenes from olden times which is quite cool. Cafe is great as well.
