Five must-see museums in Stockholm

Image: Millesgеrden

Some people call Stockholm the "Venice of the North". Built on 14 islands, this stunning capital is vibrant and so easy to get around. It's often the weather that decides if you'll walk (it's easy to walk the entire city), take a ferry, bus or underground as you explore all that this amazing city has to offer! Read on as I share a few of my favourite museums, often lesser known and some free to the general public.


The Thiel Gallery - This is one for the art lovers! Located just minutes from the city centre in walled grounds at Blockhusudden in the royal park of Djurgеrden, it's a stunning and serene location.

Hallwyl Museum - discover how the well heeled live in Stockholm at this small wee gem of a museum.

Millesgеrden - one of my favourites, Millesgerden is located on Lidingц, an island just outside the city. Well worth making the trip to this unique museum, plus enjoy a lunch under the large pergola.

Fotografiska - always provides fabulous exhibitions! Even if you're not into photography, you'll enjoy it and the view from the restaurant upstairs is worth the visit alone!

Waldemarsudde - see how the Swedish Prins Eugen lived and fulfilled his dreams as an artist, including studying under Leon Bonnat!
