Three Museums to Visit in Stockholm

The beautiful city of Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and attracts many visitors every year due to offering lots of great things to see and do.

With plenty of culture to share with tourists, Stockholm is the perfect place to visit if you love to spend hours wandering around fascinating museums, and here we share three museums to visit in Stockholm that you cannot miss.

Vasa Museum

If you are looking for something a bit different, you simply have to visit Stockholm’s Vasa Museum, the most visited museum in Scandinavia. Dedicated to the Vasa warship that sank in 1628, this museum gives you the chance to see the ship which is still 95% original after years of careful restoration.

Take a look at the 69m long ship, admire its wonderful carved sculptures, and explore the 10 exhibitions which will tell you all about the ship and those who sailed it.

ABBA Museum

Music fans will absolutely love the ABBA Museum, which is of course dedicated to all things ABBA, including outfits, records, instruments, and accessories. You will also find temporary exhibitions which are held throughout the year and give you an extra glimpse into the band and their lives.

Not only will you get to see loads of memorabilia, you will also be able to enjoy the interactive parts of the museum where you ca try on virtual costumes, sing and dance, and even record your own performance which you can then take home with you. They say that you may walk into the museum but you will definitely dance out!

Moderna Museet

Located on the naturally beautiful Skeppsholmen Island, the Moderna Museet is home to a collection of European modern and contemporary art from the 20th century until the present day, including pieces by Picasso, Dali, Derkert, and Matisse, and is the perfect attraction for culture vultures.
