Fotografiska#7 in Best Things To Do in Stockholm
Stockholm is full of unique museums. There's one dedicated to the band ABBA, another to a sunken warship (the Vasa Museum), and of course there's Skansen, the world's first open-air museum. Fotografiska stands out in that it is entirely made up of contemporary photography. The museum presents four large exhibitions and 15 to 20 smaller exhibitions throughout the year, showcasing a variety of photography styles and subjects. Portraits, landscapes, black and white photos, series about war and even pregnancy have passed through Fotografiska. The museum aims to present a mix of unknown talents as well as big international names, some of which have included Annie Leibovitz, David LaChapelle and Nick Brandt.
Recent visitors offered mixed reviews of Fotografiska. Many travelers enjoyed the museum, raving about the interesting and thought-provoking photographs, while others felt the attraction was overhyped and overpriced. Some of those, however, admitted they weren't photography buffs to begin with. But what many did agree on was the top-notch dining options, as well as the stunning views of the waterways found within.
You'll also find a restaurant, a cafe and a gift shop on-site. The Fotografiska is located off of the Slussen metro stop. Once you reach the Slussen station, walk about a half-mile east along the waterfront. Entrance to Fotografiska costs 120 kronor for adults (about $14) and is free for children younger than 12. The museum is open from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday and 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. Thursday through Saturday. For more information, visit Fotografiska's website.
