Sharing premises with Moderna Museet but not nearly as prestigious an institution this is nevertheless an interesting enough museum. The building itself combines both ancient and contemporary architecture and was designed by Rafael Moneo. Most of the centers appeal focuses on its temporary and special exhibitions or on its frequent workshops, which are organised for all ages. The main permanent exhibitions focus on Swedish architecture for the last 1000 years and the influences that led it to evolve. Over 2.5 million items are in the collection. Check the attraction website for upcoming and current exhibitions and events.

Arkdes, Stockholm Reviews - Write a Review

  • Incredible explanation of public housing progress from early 1900s till today. Also good information about traditional Swedish architecture. Worthwhile.

  • Very interesting exhibition about progres of both global and swedish architecture and urban planing.

  • For those interested in architecture, this is a nice enough place to visit. There's descriptions of Swedish architectural history and development, miniature models of both houses that were built, and that weren't, and some other tidbits of knowledge. Free entrance, but the exhibit is small. It shares locale with the Modern Museum, so you can stroll from ArkDes to there, without leaving the building.

  • Exquisite maquettes. Small, beautifully curated.

  • Really interesting exhibition on housing affordability and availability. Also, a gingerbread house competition! I didn't think I'd be very interested, but it really surprised me. And it's free. It's in the same building as the Modern Museet (modern art gallery)
