Fotografiska (Photography Museum)

Admire contemporary works, take part in workshops and enjoy views of Stockholm’s islands of Skeppsholmen and Djurgården at this museum dedicated to photography.

At Stockholm’s Fotografiska enjoy rotating exhibitions of contemporary photography, learn how to use a camera and enjoy panoramic city views from a top-floor restaurant. Set in a refurbished art noveau building, this photography museum opened in 2010 and provides a stage for internationally renowned photographers to display their work.

The museum’s galleries showcase four large exhibitions per year in addition to 15 to 20 smaller presentations. One of the opening exhibitions was A Photographer’s Life by acclaimed American portrait photographer, Annie Leibovitz. Other exhibitions include ePic Moments, a collection of Olympic images from 1912 to 2012, and work by Swedish photographers Julia Hetta and Helena Blomqvist. 

Photography enthusiasts can enjoy beginners’ photography courses in English on weekends. There are also classes, in Swedish only, about digital imagery and visual communication plus lectures by renowned artists. 

Go to the restaurant on the top floor of the museum for views of Stockholm’s Saltsjön Bay and the islands of Skeppsholmen and Djurgården. The menu features predominantly vegetarian dishes. In the summer an outdoor bistro is open outside the museum’s entrance. From Thursday to Saturday listen to live music and DJ entertainment at the bistro. If you enjoy it, come back a second night since the bistro is also open to non-visitors of the museum.

Located on Stadsgårdshamnen, Fotografiska is a 10-minute drive from the city center. Public buses and the metro stop at Slussen, which is a short walk from the museum. Alternatively, from King’s Garden it is a 30-minute walk along the Gamla Stan (Old Town) waterfront. 

Fotografiska is open daily, except for Christmas Eve and Midsummer’s Eve in mid-June. Guided tours of the exhibitions are available by prior arrangement. See the museum’s official website for full details of tours, opening hours and prices of courses.
