The second floor was excellent and it had English explanations for the exhibits. The first floor had some very interesting objects on exhibit, but the explanations were all in Swedish so I do not know what I was looking at

People interested in cultures, imperialism, and colonialism will be interested in this museum. Some interesting displays, but not everything is bilingual so some displays, I quickly glanced over. Worth the walk if you are interested in this type of stuff, plus it's free.

Well we do have better and more interesting museums in Stockholms. The food is okay but it feels like one is visiting the primary school restaurant...

This museum is quite fascinating but quite difficult for those who do not read Swedish. It appears to be a museum in progress, having staff who are enthusiastic about their subject matter. However, the museum appears to have been started in a wonderful new facility...More

A quaint, underrated museum that is interesting and not too big. The current Japan temporary exhibit was well done but a bit too much stuff that wasn't related. Was meant to be mainly about cosplay and indigo subcultures but had a few other random Japanese...More

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
