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.

Obviously, depending on if you like the photographers currently being exhibited this is a very nice place located at the waterfront of Stockholm. Fotografiska has a good but a bit pricey restaurant (compared to average lunch price) and a museum store where you can buy photographs, posters, and books. Fotografiska often hosts fairs and seminars and is a private and commercial museum (not run by the government like most museums in Stockholm). In short a great place if you like photography.
Great museum even for people who doesn't like photography! Very eye opening. Definitely worth the visit. even if you been there go back again as the exhibition changes every few weeks. The museum has very good explanations with every section so no need to do the guided tour as you can get most of the info on the museum wall!
Fantastic place to visit when in Stockholm. Exhibitions vary of course but there are always so many different ones that you'll surely find something of personal interest. Fair admission price, nice building. You work your way up to a nice cafe with a unique and stunning view over Stockholm. Highly recommended!
Perfect palace to bring someone from out of town, a friend or a date or a lover or just yourself... except the main focus of photography art, there is a cozy bar / restaurant with view of Stockholm. They host some special events that's usually very intimate. Fotografiska goes on the top suggestion for places to visit in Stockholm. Perfect opening hours adds a lot to the experience!
One of the biggest photo museums out there to visit. Large collections for the interested. The bar on the highest floor has great cocktails to offer for an end-of-the-day treat after an unique photo viewing experience.
