From the outside and from the inside the building is quite stunning. Unfortunately, the exhibition itself isn't as good as the building would suggest. Nevertheless, a nice trip and worth the while. Price is OK for the content but nothing special.

Well, as for me it's a rather standard historical and ethnographic museum situated in amazingly beautiful building. There's about eight or ten small exhibitions inside, some of them curious, some are not so ) Surely if you have free hour or two it would be nice to visit Nordiska but in my opinion it's definitely not "must-see" place.

Everything you want to know about Swedish traditions in housing, furniture, costumes, folk arts, and Sami culture. Four floors of exhibits with multi-language audio explanations. Especially beautiful at Christmas with a huge decorated tree in the entrance hall.

This is a museum for visitors that are interested how people lived in Sweden in the past centuries.From peasants to high class. From holidays like Christmas to interior design of 60's Swedish working class homes. Also toys, design, beer making traditions etc was covered. Btw it's free of charge during winter on Wednesday evenings.

The building is absolutely stunning and beautiful. I enjoyed a great lunch before exploring the exhibits. On the first floor was an Aurora Borealis exhibit which was out of this world. I really felt as if I was standing in a field with the magical colorful lights dancing above me. Loved it! The Sami exhibit was superb and gave an... More

The building itself is a magnificient place. The permanent exhibitions are interesting and well displayed, but overall they are pretty average. This museum can easily be visited in one hour (max 2) and it gives a nice impression of the Swedish way of life. One visit is enough - I see no reason to return. But do pay a visit,... More

We were not very impressed, overall is not bad, especially for people who are very interested in history maybe, but for me it was a little boring.

Great museum that really shows the history of the Nordic people, from how they lived and ate over the past few hundred years. Price was around $10 which wasn't too bad and we stayed for about 2 hours. Aside from the northern lights exhibit that didn't really show the lights, everything else was very cool! There are also lockers downstairs... More

To me the museum's exterior was the best part. I found the exhibits to be a bit lacking in context and history which made it difficult to follow. If you are somewhat versed in recent Scandinavian life this museum may bring back some fond memories, but otherwise would skip it unless you are REALLY into folk art or jewelry. It... More

Great funs for hours. The museum had something for everyone and a very nice cafe and gift shop as well. Between here and City Hall, we found nice authentic gifts for friends and family. We came at Christmas and we're able to pose for Christmas photos in front of the decorated Christmas tree within the main lobby. I really! Enjoyed... More
