The Royal Academy of FIne Arts is located at 12 Fredsgatan in the City area. Not worth a special visit.

This place is really not worth the visit. There are some artist spaces, which are not open to public, and coffee store, which overlooks the sculpture foyer. Then there were some random paintings and modern art pieces, which were not that impressive. We visited this...More

This is an unfortunate name for the gallery. One exhibit was someone selling paintings, another looked like the first exercise of a sick film student. There is a reason no one was there. Interesting old building for art that needs a curator.

The limited selection from the currently closed Nationalmuseum is impressive, and worth the visit and the rather steep 100 kr price of admission. However, it's over too fast. The sculptures in the entrance hall are also impressive, so if you're not willing to pay to...More

The National Musuem is closed for refurbishment currently, and to compensate 100 great paintings from there are on display at this Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Entrance costs each adult SEK 100. The paintings are diverse and interesting, with a Rembrant self-portrait, serval Renoirs, etc....More

We couldn't find any information on what was there or where any exhibits were. Most doors were marked private and we only got to see a temporary exhibition by an artist we had never heard of.

Norrmalm is Stockholm’s most central and busiest
neighborhood. It’s home to the main shopping street,
Drottninggatan, and to Stockholm icons like the
Sergels Torg glass obelisk, the famous Hay Market with
its Carl Milles sculptures, and the Hötorget
Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm
postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most
traditional department stores Nordiska Kompaniet and
