“Less Museum, More Modern Art Gallery”

Historical Museum of Wines and Spirits
Attraction details
Reviewed 27 December 2013

If it wasn't for the free entrance granted as part of the Stockholm Card and that it was located between Skansen and Vasa, we would never have gone here - and in reality, if I had missed it, I wouldn't have felt bad.

There's some nice modern art in there - in different shapes, forms and styles (including music), but I must say that overall, the exhibition was a bit of a disappointment. Having been to whisky exhibitions in Scotland, I expected more or the processes, which wasn't there. A shame, in some respects.

Completely different Museum from what I would had expected. A clever mix of Art, Health and alcohol related culture in Sweden. A little bit heavy on Absolut Vodka, but very interesting.
I recommend it highly.

I can across this by accident after visiting Skansen and on my way to Vasa.

This little gallery all about Absolute and Swedens love/hate relationship with alcohol was both informative and interactive.

At 100SEK for enterance fees, hardly the cheapest but it still beats the Abba museum and ice bar near central station at a whopping 190SEK each to get in there.

As you enter the gallery, you come to a small room with art works depicting Absolut. You also get a 'free-bie' souvenir of a replica catalogue from 1986 regarding artwork on Absolut.

The main museum provides a juxtaposition on Swedens strict government run liquor stores and the historical propaganda surrounding this (although to be fair Canada has a similar approach to alcohol with LCBOs and so on) as well as the creation of Absolut vodka and the artistic identity surrounding this. There is also exhibition and artistic pieces surrounding the drinking culture with younger people.

The gallery also had an exhibition called 'rude girls (yes they are rude pictures) but this didn't interest me.

If you are interested in Absolut and drinking then go and visit as I feel it can be recommended

This "museum" is different - and refreshingly so. It combines the history of Absolut Vodka production with a great creative art experience. Beginning with andy Warhol, the museum features many works of art - some very innnovative - featuring the classic absolut bottle! Priceless!

This museum has moved and is now called the Spirt Museum. It is based right behind the Vasa Museum at 38, Djurgården. The highlight is an art exhibition, showing some of the original pieces by Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Helmut Newton, Damien Hirst, Louise Bourgeois, David Shrigley, Douglas Gordon, Sylvie Fleury, Dan Wolgers and Hung Tung-Lu. The tour guide is really enigmatic and throughout the visit he explains the growth of Absolute Vodka alongside the changes in the Swedish drinking cultures. The exhibitions are interactive, with the scent of different flavor vodkas mingled with scenes of spring, summer and autumn. Sadly you get to see the tasting room but not try any vodka. However they have a restaurant and outdoor bar with fantastic views of the Djurgården. Not a museum for children.
