“Not much to see”

Sven-Harrys Gallery
Ranked #96 of 312 things to do in Stockholm
Attraction details
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Sure, the idea is interesting, the building likewise, but there's not much of a collection for visitors to see. As for the temporary exhibitions, the one on display right now, Swedish fashion, is nice, but quite small and not really thought through.

Celebrated a friends birthday here 2/9 and received excellent and friendly service - and also one of the best risottos i've ever had in Sweden!

This museum displays the private art collection of the property developer Sven-Harry Karlsson as well as temporary exhibitions. The building itself is absolutely spectacular; glitzy exterior extravaganza in brass fused with blonde wood interior references to an old Swedish manor from the 18th century.
The museum is in a few levels levels. The basement has lockable cupboards where one can store over coats and bags. There is also a movie area showing interesting clips about the museum and the exhibitors. On the ground level is the excellent museum shop and temporary exhibitions. On the second level are more temporary exhibitions (accessible via stairs or lift). On the top floor is Sven-Harrys private collection displayed in a replica of his home, set as a freestanding building on the roof top, surrounded by a roof-top sculpture garden. Personally, I found the building to be the high-light rather than the temporary exhibitions.

There are two admission options available to the visitor. I chose the basic option which gave me access to the temporary exhibition, and two of the three levels of the museum as well as the roof top. In hindsight, I would have chosen the slightly more expensive option which includes Sven-Harry's private collection. However, even with the basic ticket option, one can catch glimpses of the private collection whilst walking around the sculpture garden on the roof top. A visit to the roof-top is a must!

One last tip: Be sure not to miss the sliding brass entry doors to the museum - very James Bond!
