Moderna Museet - Stockholm reviews
Nice museum to walk round and located on a nice island a short stroll from the central area. I'm not really a huge fan of modern art but some exhibits were quite interesting.

It’s not as small as I read in the reviews. Plan for at least 3 hours if you like to read the description/ spend some time in front of the piece. A good mix of media such has canvases, installations and videos. Would’ve liked to see more works of new generation Of artists.
The collection felt very much like a loose collection of pieces and not something with a story. Some works in the basement were really captivating. The quality of the individual artworks is excellent. The museum consists of a modern layout with a large ground floor and a small basement. The entrance to the permanent collection is free, the temporary exhibition has a pretty steep price.
