A true find for those interested in architecture and design. The museum's location on Skeppsholmen also provides for a spectacular view over the Stockholm skyline. The museum even provides free admission on Fridays from 4pm-6pm.
- Sweden's only museum of architecture shares its location with Moderna Museet, so it is recommended to visit both. The museum's two spacious halls provide a conducive atmosphere to study the logic behind some of the world's most famous architectural forms. Despite the impressive international focus, the curators have not forgotten the importance of local developments, and there is an interesting section devoted to ancient and modern Swedish architecture, which includes a wooden model of the city of Gothenburg. For researchers, the museum has an archive with close to one million plans and sketches, and a sizeable collection of photographs. To reach the museum, catch bus no 65.
