Disappointingly limited displays. You'd really need to be into contemporary art to appreciate those areas. The Design galleries were badly displayed and lacked any clear narrative information (at least in English signage) explaining the different rooms.

Röhsska is not worth a visit. A boring place without any fundamental idea. Very dull and sour staff, stay away.
