Strindbergsmuseet - Review
August Strindberg was a famous 19th century Swedish author, playwright, and artist. This was his last home, the Blue Tower, where he spent four years. It has been preserved as it used to be during his life time, complete with bedroom, dining room and workroom. But the main attraction is probably his library of 3000 works. There’s a central exhibition too - Strindberg in the centre - mostly books and paintings and photos. Check the museum website for upcoming temporary exhibitions.
- Check website for details on guided tours.
- Check out the museum shop.

Strindbergsmuseet, Stockholm Reviews
The museum was pleasant. The receptionist was incredibly rude. She was engaged in a personal phone call. She didn't look up or bade me farewell. I've heard that this museum is privately owned. Take care in looking after the visitors! The information on Google hasn't mentioned the increase in the ticket rise.
One of the smaller museums in Stockholm is the Strindberg museum, which is located at the far end of the shopping street Drottninggatan, and it is housed in the late laureate's apartment in a building from the early 1900. The museum begins with a tour through his apartment as it was when he lived there and then continues throughout the different periods in his life and focus on different areas of his views. There is also a small cinema showing documentaries about his life. Overall a small but interesting museum for a rainy day, the museum will take about an hour to go through if you spend some time at the exhibits
Cramped and small. Interesting but not much to see. I saw both floors of the museum which is 2 old apartments and it took me less than 15 min. Still worth a short visit.
It was a fantastic experience to be in the very place where the writer lived his final years. But for a foreign visitor it was annoying that most of the descriptions of his work, painting and e.t.c. was in the Swedish language. Very few labels was in English and I would like to read all of the information was given. I told that to the officer. At least it should have a smaller ticket for tourists since we could gather and comprehend the written details. August Strindberg is a major writer for the European literature and it would be wonderful if it will be treated that way, then a Swedish writer. Thank you for your time!
Great place to visit if you like Swedish culture and litteratur.
