What should be a great collection is unviewable while renovations continue until 2017. Wish they found some way to have at least a small nit on view somewhere else

You get a great display over early modern historical paintings with a connection to Sweden as well as nice separate exhibitions. Don't missed the lectures or the guides that are usually not very costly with the experts in the art, to get a deeper insight that will enhance your time at the museum.

During the major restauration of the main museum building National Museum is using the premises of the previous Academy of the Arts. This exhibition is focusing the role of the artist during centuries passed. The works exhibited are both major works from the regular exhibition but also works that are rarely shown. I recommend to take one of the guided... More

Very big museum with a lot of information about the Swedish past. Very informative and a broad collection of history. Interesting for anyone as many historical subjects are covered.

This museum is packed with scenarios of Swedish life from long ago to today. The variety is outstanding; take your time and don't skip anything. You will learn a lot about Scandinavian life!

One of the few free museums in Stockholm. Very interesting and varied collection of sculpture and paintings, across different periods. Worth a short visit.

The National Museum is permanently closed but has two other temporary sites. The Art Academy houses a small permanent collection of art in a classical setting. Worth a small look. Disappointing not to see more Swedish Artists, rather than an international selection.

The National Museum is being renovated and is doing temporary exhibitions at the Art Academy on Fredsgatan. While Nationalmuseum is one of the grandest museums in Stockholm, this one is actually more manageable in terms of size. The exhibitions are usually large enough to give you a proper museum experience, and small enough that you can walk through them without... More

The National Museum is under construction so the exhibits are in two separate buildings and aren't curated that well. But it is free to the public and has a interesting collection.
