If you like photos, Fotografiska is the place to go to when in Stockholm. Fotografiska can be found on Stadsgårdshamnen 22 in Södermalm, in an old tollhouse close to the water. Go to Slussen and follow the street near the water and you cannot miss it. It opened in 2010 and has an exhibition space of 2'500 squaremeters. There have been exhibitions of some popular photographers such as Annie Leibovitz, Nick Brandt, Peter Lindbergh and countless others. You can find their current exhibitions on their website. The entrance fee varies depending on the day and time of your visit. The museum is open until very late daily.
Other than the fantastic exhibitions, you have a beautiful view on Gamla stan and in summer you can sit outside for some drinks, snacks, pizzas and delicious grilled meals, served by super-friendly staff (might be the most motivated and friendliest service I had here so far) at their summerrestaurant Verandan. Check out the details and food and drinks here.
And of course some food inside, for example the award-winning Fotografiska Restaurant with a stunning view. Unfortunately it's closed in summer, but check it out when being there on any other time of the year. And there is also a shop where you can find hundreds of books of famous photographers.
It's true that you mostly have to walk a bit to get to the museum, but it's worth it. When you visit in summer, there is the really nice eco-boat that takes you from Nybroplan to Fotografiska and back. Once you've paid the small amount, you can stay on the boat as long as you want and can also get a drink. A nice sightseeingtour worth discovering! Find the details and hours here.
Plan some hours for your visit and enjoy it!
