The best museum shops in Stockholm
Publish date: 16 November 2020
Can't find the perfect souvenir or gift to bring home? Well, maybe you should try any of the great museum shops in Stockholm.
Due to the current situation with the coronavirus Covid-19, many museums have limited opening hours only admitting a reduced number of visitors at any given time. Some are temporarily closed. We reserve ourselves for any errors in this guide and refer directly to the museums for further questions.
I usually buy seasonal tickets to all of Stockholm’s museums, although I sometimes wait to renew them until there is something in the program I really want to see. One great thing about the museums, besides all the exciting exhibitions, is the museum shops. Overall, they have an assortment of really fun and interesting souvenirs and books. They’re not just some tacky knick-knacks and make great presents.
Normally I stop-by the shops and just buy something as a gift, not for myself. But recently I visited Sven Harry’s Art Museum and their wonderful exhibition on Sami art. There was a beautiful barrette on display and I reached out to the artist, to ask if there were more (and if so, for sale). There were, and with my 85th birthday coming up I decided to treat myself. I won’t tell you what it cost, though. Or my husband, for that matter!
