Nationalmuseum, Stockholm

Nationalmuseum was established in 1866 and has since then been Sweden’s largest museum for art and design. Except for remarkable art, the museum offers beautiful views over the city.

After five years of re-construction, The New Nationalmuseum at Blasieholmen opens again on October 13, 2018. Nationalmuseum is Sweden’s national museum of art and design, with great collections that contain paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints from 1500–1900 and applied arts, design and portraits from the early Middle Ages up until present day. Other than excellent art, don’t miss the restaurant with stunning views over the Royal Palace.
