General info about Stockholm's Museums

As is the case in most countries, museums in Sweden are generally closed on Mondays to account for them being open on Sundays. There are some exceptions to the rule in Stockholm though, like Fotografiska, ABBA The Museum, and The Vasa Museum. Find out more about which museums are open on Mondays here.

Most museums in Stockholm are open during regular office hours, which means that weekdays are a great time for a visit if you'd like to avoid crowds. If you'd prefer an evening visit, maybe combined with dinner and drinks, there are quite a few that are open during one or two evenings every week. Spritmuseum & The Absolut Art Collection, ArkDes, and The Nobel Prize Museum to name a few. Read more in our guide here.

Several of Stockholm's museums are admission-free and among them some of the city's most popular like the National Museum, the Swedish Museum of Natural History, and The Royal Armoury. Moderna Museet's permanent exhibition is also admission-free to visit, but temporary exhibitions require tickets. Read our guide on the city's admission-free museums.
