    Museum is free for all and an absolute jewel. Filled with beautiful sculptures and paintings, along with its beautiful and grand architecture, this is a place which all should visit! Inside, you will find a progression from ancient to modern, starting from the top floor to the bottom. The sculpture garden beside the gift shop is also absolutely beautiful, and you can rest there after visting the expansive museum. Definitely worth a visit, and something which should not be missed when visiting Stockholm!

    Small artmuseum. Easy to trace art history from 1500 to 2000. Treasury is bit difficult to find the door. Don't miss it. Free entrance and easy access. Located very central, next to grand hotel. If visit here in a morning, can take great photo of old town and royal palace. There is a cozy cafe serving lunch and cakes. Can try Swedish traditional pastries.

    Lots of different art from various centuries, countries and painters. Would definetly recommend to be ready to spend at least 2-3 hours there. And it's also free if you don't want to go to the special expedition.

    Marvelous museum. Large collection with paintings, sculptures and a variety of art. It is totally free, so I see no reason not to visit it!

    Very interesting museum. The free entrance grants you access to a lot but you can get tickets for the temporary expos. Really enjoyed the statue courtyard. There are many french painters work but also swedish artists. Last part of the free expo focus on contemporary work. Overall a good experience, would visit again

    all the room and floor has different century art pieces, and it tells the story how the art developed from 14th century. there’s a locker room to put your bags. all the staff are really friendly and helpful. the interior of the museum is really well considerate. i was enjoying my visit to this museum! recommended!
