“Enjoyable Afternoon”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

I am not a big fan of contemporaneous art but I found some pieces of the collection quite tasteful. There are two museums in the building. One is about architecture. It has a wonderful exhibition about biking. It also holds a permanent collection of miniature models of Swedish buildings. The second museum is about modern painting. They have works of art of some well-known painters. The exhibition "progresses" though time, so, I did not like at all the last two rooms. Unfortunately I could not see the temporal exhibition about Dali; it was closed to public when we went (Friday Afternoon). I consider the "Moderna-Museet" a must for the those who enjoy modern painting.

“Is Fort Worth a Good Analogy?”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

This museum has a brilliant one or two painting summary from 1880 on, which is why I make the Fort Worth analogy. BUT, it also provides great summary of 20th century Swedish art and lots of English placards. If u r in Stockholm and an art lover, don't miss.

“Interesting Museum to visit in the center of Stockholm. ”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

The Stockholm Museum Of Modern Art (Moderna Museet) has one of the world’s finest collections of 20th and 21st century art.
Moderna Museet is commissioned to collect, preserve, exhibit and organise learning activities relating to all forms of 20th and 21st century art. 

When I visited the museum ther were a special exepition of the Swedish painter Dardel.
A very interesting person with a special style of painting.

Reviewed 24 August 2014

A pleasant stroll along the water front past all the old tour boats led us to the Moderna Museet. Alongside the reception desk is a very pleasant coffee shop with excellent cinnamon buns etc. In addition to the permanent collections we were fortunate enough to see the Nils Dardel exhibition which gave a good insight into the Swedish art and artists of the period. Although we did not eat there, the Museum has a restaurant with a waterfront terrace, appetizing looking dishes at reasonable prices and was really busy.

Within the same building as the Moderna Museet but with an extra entrance fee is the Architecture and Design Museum. This museum had a large and really interesting bicycle history exhibition. The architectural display area was made up of a range of models showing the development through the ages of Swedish buildings.

“A visual feast!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Even if not a collector or art buff this museum is a treat! The Museum has a permanent collection that includes many of the great artists, but also has regular new exhibits it offers. Whether a serious art buff or just an enthusiast this museum has something for everyone - the museum shop is also full of very collectable items!
