Fotografiska - Review
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, Stockholm Reviews
This is definitely one of the best museums I’ve ever been to. Exhibitions are very interesting, varied and rotated often enough for you to keep coming back. All the photos are displayed in a high quality non glare standard. They also have an amazing restaurant on their top floor with a view over the city. Even though I didn’t have any food here, but it all looked pretty impressive. Another great thing about this place is that they’re open till 11 o’clock in the evening which makes it very accessible and convenient.
Great museum of photography. I think the exhibitions are constantly changing. It is a little tricky to get to but worth it. Be mindful that they do not accept cash - this means you will need to pay for entry with credit card! There is a cafe up on the top floor with delicious food and amazing views of the water (and Stockholm) given the location. There is also a restaurant that is open till quite late which seems cool.
Went for one of the current exhibitions, "SeaLegacy: Turn the tide" which was absolutely brilliant. A poignant reminder that we're not the last generation that will live on this planet and that we should see to that there's something left for the one's that are to follow us. Was also impressed with another exhibition there called "Until the kingdom comes", also highly recommendable. The museum itself is nice with a very scenic view over the city if you ignore the busy street behind the building. The outside bar is brilliant when the weather is fine, didn't visit the restaurant so can't say anything about it. A modern museum that is clean and well kept.
Small, yet fantastically curated museum drawing from lots of different photographers. Each exhibit is very different and unique. It's very manageable with a great top floor featuring concerts, a great cafe offering, and lounge seats to relax. They have made the museum a great place to spend 3-5 hours if you have time.
If you remotely enjoy photography, you owe it to yourself to visit this museum. The exhibitions and artist selection are great. The fact that the Cafe on the last floor is pretty good (really good actually) and has cool views of the bay doesn't hurt
