    Enjoyed the visit to this museum and a glimpse into Strindberg's life and his collections and life in 20th century Sweden. Worth a visit even if you are not interested in the man himself.  more »

    The Strindberg Museum in Stockholm at Drottninggatan 85, the so-called Blue Tower, is a must for every literature interested, but the Museum is also worth a detour for the ordinary tourist. It was Strindberg himself who called his home for the last four years of his life to the Blue Tower. It rises mightily in the corner of Drottninggatan and Tegnérgatan (at Tegnérlunden, in which Strindberg stands statue). The apartment was part of a guest, so there is no kitchen, but Strindberg got take-away food from the pension Falkner or restaurants nearby. It is fascinating to see how this versatile artist lived in his loneliness, but also amused themselves with some faithful friends; in particular, I stay at his desk, where his pencils and ink pens are lined up, sharpened, to plunge into the next strindbergsfejd. In addition to the author's apartment and the Museum with its subject is the House itself worth seeing. It was modern for its time, there was an elevator, telephone, electric lights and bathroom. The old elevator with door knirkar slowly up to the fourth floor, past the towering .5 landings with beautifully designed doors. It can be seen from the room behind the balcony, where the author on two occasions received the labour movement courtship of two birthdays. At the moment, the housing association which owns the property on to implement a change of pipes, so when you get that visitors free ticket to yet another visit when reprationerna shall be completed. The apartment was vacated after the Strindberg died in 1912 and was first opened in 1973, again as a museum with original furniture and other antique things from the beginning of the last century.
