We both enjoyed this journey through time and the retro feel of the objects. This was part of the 40SEK we had paid at the fine arts museum and therefore good value for money. There were some interactive displays with sewing and needlework but when opened to the public there will always be some comedians who want to write offensive... More

We went with small children at the end of the day using our prepaid entry as part of a citycard scheme. Most of the floors were closed so we would have been annoyed if we'd paid full price. An interesting eclectic selection of items from over the ages clearly put together by someone that likes apple products but not other... More

A great introduction to modern Swedish design, this relaxed museum traces Swedish domestic design from 1851 to modern day by means of iconic domestic gadgets and furniture. It is well presented in a modern wing of the building and includes all sorts of evocative objects from an early microwave, which is unrecognisable, to chairs which have remained uber-cool since they...

A museum about design is definitely not very spectacular. Design, however, is around us in our daily life and seriously affects our mood. This museum offers a nice overview of design orientation from the late 19th century to our days, with items the elders among us easily recognize as objects of desire in their time... On the ground floor there... More

It is not a big museum, but very interesting. You can't spend a day to visit it, but there are lot of interesting pieces. I.e there has been 132 chairs from 1700 till today. In the Rosa Hall, there has been some Art Nouveau pieces, from Gallé, Daum, Tiffany.

Well presented collection of design objects the swedes are famous for, though there's also a spattering of foreign design eg Charles Rennie mckintosh chairs, a 1948 Vespa moped. Also a section behind the cafe I nearly missed with some young designer concepts.
