Nationalmuseum, Stockholm

4.0
#17 of 67 in Museums in Stockholm
On the scenic peninsula Blasieholme sits Nationalmuseum, which was built in the mid-19th century in the North Italian Renaissance style. You can admire the exterior, but the building is closed for renovation until 2017. The national gallery holds the country's premier collection of art and design, including works from the Middle Ages up to the 20th century. Most prominently, the collection boasts significant pieces from Rembrandt and other Dutch painters. To see some of its treasures, visit the temporary exhibit space at the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts.

  • Let me focus on some details that other reviewers have not brought up, as far as I have seen. The audio-guide provides valuable information in a creative interview-style format, and is highly recommen...  more »
  • After being on the top floor (level 6 according to the elevator) a short time after the reopening it was so time to take a look at the floor 4 (according to the elevator). Certainly the reunion of art that was in place before the renovation, but a whole lot new, at least what my memory allows. There is a department called the Treasury, which is a little misleading. It contains miniature paintings that IOFs can earn a place in a treasury. However, it must be said that one must be impressed by the skill of producing such small works of art with such detail. Many rooms to find around in and it is not always easy to find how to go to go in chronological order without it will be a bit snurrigt with doors that you do not know if you can/may open to the surrounding rooms.

  • Huge museum and they have 3 levels. They provide cloakrooms and toilets in underground level. The museum is free. But it's a bit difficult to store our things in the locker provided as we took a lot of time finding which locker is not in use by trying to put the password. BTW it's a good museum
  • Nicely renovated. They created a great timeline ranging from the top to the bottom, very well structured and not too much to see. Also FREE to enter! The way national treasures should be.
