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

This museum is great if you would like to learn about the different kinds of clothing, jewelry, lifestyles, homesteads, lamps, etc that swedes through the ages used, but it wasn't the most interesting or pertinent for a tourist who doesn't know much about Swedish culture to begin with.

Although this museum does not receive a lot of high ratings, this is really a gem of a museum in Stockholm and I would recommend it for both an insightful and easy experience. After paying about $10 per adult (and our 16 year old daughter was admitted for free!) the staff directs to the lower floors that have free lockers... More

To be honest , the exterior of the building is the best part of the museum. You will learn about various things about Swedish culture , it's informative but provided you are keen on such it gets boring after a while. I'm more of a history guy , so this is just so so to me .

I took advantage of the free admission to this museum on a Wednesday night earlier this month. I thought that the English language audioguide gave me a good overview on the various holdings of this museum that gave me some insight into Scandinavian(and particularly Swedish) culture & traditions. The founder of this museum(Artur Hazelius) wanted to "collect & save objects... More

If you are really eager to learn on the Swedish culture then by all means go. Personally i find the exhibition a bit too sombre and not interactive enough for the admission price which is 100 sek, around £10. The museum's building itself is beautiful but you can just take pictures from outside

Neighbourhood Profile
Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of nature and an abundance of museums, while being located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take endless walks through a beautiful park landscape without having to leave the city, but also offers an incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.
