Holiday Travel Guide
National Museum

Manet, Rubens and Rembrandt are among the big names in this classic art museum, also known for its extensive print and design collections.

Art and design are celebrated in the National Museum, a light and airy space whose walls are graced by classic works of art. The collections are made up of paintings, prints and drawings crafted from the 16th through the 20th centuries. Spend a few hours exploring the various rooms and displays to appreciate its many types of classic art.

Peruse paintings dating back to the Renaissance era and admire the pieces by Old Masters including Rembrandt and Rubens as well as the impressionist Renoir. Study the paintings by Swedish artists from the 18th and 19th centuries and inspect the wealth of French and Dutch works.

The museum has an intriguing focus on design and applied art, featuring thousands of pieces of textiles, ceramics and glass. Check out the antique books and period furniture that provide a window into the past. Marvel at the original prints and drawings by Edouard Manet, Carl Larsson and Carl Fredrik Hill, among other gifted artists.

The gallery also possesses the fascinating Gustavsberg Collection, which comprises its namesake factory’s porcelain objects created between the 1830s and 1994, when the plant closed.

View the temporary exhibitions, which vary in theme and have covered such topics as precious objects and curiosities for children. Enjoy a meal or have coffee in the upscale Glass Bar and Café.

Entry to the museum is generally free, although certain traveling exhibitions may have a fee. Stop in during open hours on Tuesdays through Sundays from late morning until evening. The site closes later on Thursdays.

The National Museum is next to the Skeppsholmsbron bridge in the heart of Stockholm. Walk here in 2 minutes from the Strömkajen ferry terminal. Ride a bus to a nearby stop or take the tram to the Nyrboplan station. Make sure to see other attractions in the neighborhood such as the Östasiatiska Museum, the Modern Museum and Berzelii Park.
