    Ideally located on charming kungsholmen Island, this museum is offering to its visitors rich permanent collections of asiatic art. Temporary exhibition like BORO until january 2022 benefits of superb scenery. Do not miss the little museum café with japanese treats and a selection of fine teas.

    Exquisite collections of antiques from Egypt, Greece, Roman and Middle East empire. The museum is very innovative and interactive since they are using modern digital technology to present history during those times. Hence you can uncover layers of a Egyptian coffin, also you have the opportunity to write down your name using Egyptian hieroglyphs. Inside the museum is a lovely coffee shop where you can relax.

    I call in mid day in the middle of the week. I'd not been here for a few years and it was good to revisit. Its important to note that the museum is a bit of a specialist place and does focus on the Far East, lots of antiquities from the region dating back many years. I particularly liked the exhibit regarding Buddah/Buddhism and thought the displays were well laid out with insightful text. There are refreshments available. I will call again.

    A small quality museum with Eastern Asian artefacts. For me the big attraction is a spacious room, that hosts a good collection of Buddha statues, from India, China, Pakistan, Tibet, as well as some photos. Some of the valuable statues are in glass casings but most are in the open air. These Buddhas certainly have a presence and blessing power – if you are open to such things and give yourself time to really be there, with yourself and them. The museum also has some current exhibitions, we saw one of Korean women divers – beautiful wheather beaten, water beaten, mostly older women in their 70’s and 80’s. At present the museum is also free of charge and lies within 200 meters of the Modern Museum.

    The far East Asian museum is amazing! It's easily accessible by walking from Kungstradgården and has interesting exhibits from China, Korea, Japan, Nepal and many more countries. There's also a gift shop selling souvenirs from different cultures and a small cafe as well. there are lockers for free for bags and the entire museum is child friendly.

    A relaxing and nice museum. There are several very unique sculptures of Bhudda. Good for kids as well.

    It is certainly an interesting looking museum with an interesting collection of art; mainly from China, Japan and Korea; the admission is free so a must visit.
