  • Filled with exhibits from all aspects of Nordic life, some more interesting than others but there should be something in here for everyone. Some really well done set-piece exhibits.  more »

  • A must visit, if you're on the island, but do give it at least 3 hours, as there's so much to see. There's an amazing collection of suomi artifacts and information, with beautifully crafted wooden spoons, antler knife handles, intricate embroidered hats and vests. A while area dealing with beer making from the past to today. Fashion, household items, and a great display of table etiquette through the ages. Too much to list, just go and see for yourself.
  • The exhibition nordic light could have done so much more digging into the nordic art and literature, instead one was shown numerous lamp designs from ikea.
  • Pretty bland museum experience. Really smartly designed and the audio guide is free. Alas still not a lot to look at. You would more likely learn more about Swedish culture if you talk to a local (don't do that to strangers tho, cause no one talk to strangers in Sweden).
  • Really educational if you are into the Northern Europe history, personally I do enjoy it a lot as a fan of history
  • Entry is about 100SEK but it's worth it, because this is quite a huge and varied museum. It has permanent exhibits ranging from photography to jewellery as well as reconstructions of places from history. The temporary exhibitions seem to change every few months but were no less interesting - when we were there, they were about beer brewing and the Sami people.
