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

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.

Went to a superb exhibition here last week - 'From Tsars to Commissars'. Significant paintings (x60) displayed from Russian State Museum in St Petersburg. Although Stockholms National main museum is closed for renovation it is def worth a visit here.
