Moderna Museet

With an art collection comprising more than 130 000 works, Moderna Museet (Museum of Modern Art) is Sweden’s leading museum for modern and contemporary art.

By combining international masterpieces by artists such as Warhol, Picasso and Dali with temporary exhibitions by prominent artists of the 20th and 21st century, Moderna Museet manages to attract many returning visitors for an ever-changing art experience. The original collection was dominated by Swedish and Nordic art, American art from the 1950’s and 60s, and French-oriented modernism, however, the collection has been extended to include more female artists and to create a more versatile collection with works from all over the world. 

Make sure to visit the museum restaurant with impressive views over Royal Djurgården and the famous boulevard Strandvägen. Finally, there is a popular museum shop to explore, and don’t miss the children’s workshop if you’re travelling with kids.
