This beautiful city has a number of amazing and diverse museums available for public viewing, whether your interests lies in nature, design, Swedish history, Swedish naval history, art, sculptures, even classic children’s books if that’s what you’re into!
If you’re not sure what you’re interested in seeing, here’s a list of my favorite museums here in Stockholm:
- Swedish Museum of Natural History and Cosmonova: exhibitions on forest animals, whales, and even some of the earliest species of humans on Earth. (Tip: located about 5 minutes walk away from Stockholm Univerisity’s campus, or take to the Red Line to Universitet)
- Millesgården: a fabulous museum that includes a sculpture park, antiques collection, and art gallery. (Tip: located 15 minutes from downtown Stockholm
- Skansen: founded in 1891 and one of the world’s first open-air museums, you surely don’t want to miss your opportunity to experience the historic homes and gardens while seeing for yourself how traditional pastimes looks place. (Tip: Skansen is also home to Stockholm’s only zoo! Also, if you’re planning on visiting this month, be sure to look at when the Christmas Market will take place)
- Swedish History Museum: home to the world’s biggest collection of Viking Age objects, this museum is definitely a must-see! (Tip: if you’re a history buff, this is definitely the museum for you)
So go on, plan a day trip out to one of these museums or take a day from your next free weekend. Add a little Swedish culture and history to your adventure here in Stockholm!
