Housed inside a beautiful Art Nouveau building that used to be a customs house, this is a museum of contemporary photography, one of the best in the world. There are no permanent exhibitions. Instead, four major exhibitions are presented throughout the year, as are 20 smaller exhibitions. Almost nothing presented here fails to boggle the eye. Keep a close eye on the museum’s calendar of events and track its current and upcoming exhibitions. It’s worth planning to eat here. For example, the Cafe has terrific view of the lake and the other islands. And the actual restaurant is as concerned with the visual and tactile aesthetic of food as it is with the food itself. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Stockholm Itinerary 5 Days.

Fotografiska Reviews & Ratings
Both the restaurant and the exhibits were outside of the norm, absolutely amazing! The gift shop is also impressive, with tons of print outs of art displayed, but also lots of books and other really nice gift ideas. The exhibition's also change every 8 weeks or so, so I would recommend going again if it's been a while. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because it is quite expensive, but you do get a discount on the exhibit if you also have dinner in the restaurant!
I really enjoyed this museum. There were some great exhibits with amazing photos and then some that were not my thing but still interesting to see and experience. I do wish we had made time to dine in the cafe. It’s a beautiful space with great views and some good looking food and drink. Maybe next time. There is a coat rack and lockers (all full when we were there) downstairs. Then multiple floors of exhibits. Descriptions in Swedish and English (thank you). And exhibit in one area had VR if you downloaded and app. Quite cool. The museum was kind of crowded but didn’t feel it most of the time (good flow). I like that they are open quite late on Friday and Saturday nights.
Very interesting exhibitions. I especially liked Jimmy Nelson's photos that they had there this time. Fotografiska was easily reached and on our way to ferry terminal. They had nice museum shop and there's also nice-looking restaurant on the top floor. Have to visit again.
One of the best museums I've ever been to - period. 6 exhibits meant a wide diversity of art to appreciate, and the cocktail bar + cafe on the top floor act as a reward at the end. Christian Houge's Residence of Impermanence especially blew us away - phenomenal work with a strong message.
Nice exhibits and it is open late. I especially enjoyed the augmented reality artwork. I walked here, but getting to this place is a bit tricky due to the construction. It is next to the tour boat dock.
