Create an itinerary including Nationalmuseum
On the scenic peninsula Blasieholme sits Nationalmuseum, which was built in the mid-19th century in the North Italian Renaissance style. You can admire the exterior, but the building is closed for renovation until 2017. The national gallery holds the country's premier collection of art and design, including works from the Middle Ages up to the 20th century. Most prominently, the collection boasts significant pieces from Rembrandt and other Dutch painters. To see some of its treasures, visit the temporary exhibit space at the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts.

  • A very nice and clean museum: very nice and polite staff and some wonderful history pieces on show. Like most things in Stockholm it isn’t open on Mondays though so something to factor in when...

  • Wonderful historical museum with excellent exhibitions. No entry fee for the historical parts. Plenty of toilets which are fresh and clean. And free of charge. A gem for the needy. Nice enough bar....  more

  • Very interesting museum in the heart of Stockholm which is free of a entry fee for the main exhibitions (which is about 95% of the museum I‘d say). The museum shows a great variety of art from Rembrandt pictures to innovative electric mobility designs. I highly recommend at least spending some time here since it is free and has a lot to offer!
  • For a start, the building is beautiful. They have a wide art collection, nicely arranged by decade. I loved that it is accessible for everyone. The museum is free. You get to see masterpieces like Rembrandt. For a contribution you could also acces (during my stay) two other exhibitions including a audio tour. I really liked it.
