It took a long time to get there by public transport, but once we reached it, it was worth it. Of course, visiting in summer helps, and it was lovely to be able to have lunch out in the garden overlooking greenery and statues. The museum itself houses one of my favourite Swedish painters, Carl Larsson, but I was also... More

This beautiful museum on Djurgarden is a real gem featuring early 20th century modern masterworks by Nordic artists, including an entire room of works by Munch. All are installed in a beautiful Art Noveau building built for that purpose. There is a lovely cafe, a small but nice shop, and beautiful grounds with sculptures by Rodin and others. It is... More

This is one of the least known museums of Stockholm; easily reachable from the center by tram number 7 (tourists are advised to buy a Stockholm transports card for 24, 48 or 72 hours. Specially if they are seniors they will save a lot of money and trouble). It was originally the house of a banker which lost his money... More

Me and my family had a great time at the gallery today. We arrived at 1pm had one hour to wonder around before a very well planned and interesting guided tour 2pm-3pm to get more of a background on all the pieces. Great collection of Scandinavian art and nice family excursion.

This was the house of a wealthy banker who collected beautiful works of art as well as building a house for them, now to be enjoyed by the public. There are some important works by Edvard Munch as well as one by Danish Vilhelm Hammershøi. At the far "end" of Djurgarden, as it were, you need to get a bus... More

Staying in Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn

Neighbourhood Profile
Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of nature and an abundance of museums, while being located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take endless walks through a beautiful park landscape without having to leave the city, but also offers an incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.
