The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Djurgården & Djurgårdsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of nature and an abundance of museums, while being located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take endless walks through a beautiful park landscape without having to leave the city, but also offers an incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.

Not worth your time or money

Museum with exhibitions covering mainly the swedish Nordic regions. Small exhibitions about the Artic was somewhat interesting. The main attraction was “Nordens Paris” at present, but this exhibitions was unavaiable, still they charged full entry price 140kr.

With over 1.5 million items in its rich collection
May 2021
Visiting a museum during pandemic times is a strange experience, a bit like the movie "Night at the Museum". Giant premises and you are almost alone. I came to view, The Artic - while the ice is melting. Of course, a shocking story that each of us should see. A new large exhibition provides exciting perspectives on what is at stake in the time of global warming. Nordiska offers so much more, collections that tell about life in Sweden from the 16th century onwards.

A lot of artifacts....
Jun 2020 • Solo
If you really into swedish culture w artifacts this is a place for you otherwise I wouldnt have this as a must-do. They have a god exhibition of the native sami culture which is partly unique. The building is really nice however to cover all the part exhibitions will take several hours.

Fabulous Folk Art and Table Settings
Mar 2020
If you want to learn more about Swedish Folk Arts and Traditions, this is the place! The folk art display is fantastic. I especially enjoyed the exhibit about Swedish customs and holidays. The museum also has a great section on tableware and dishes that illustrates how meals and the dishes we use to serve them have changed through the centuries. The building itself is also interesting. When we visited, they were projecting various winter scenes and patterns on the domed roof in the central hall. The Nordic is near the Vasa museum so it’s convenient to visit both the same day.

Wow. A great insight into Nordic history
Feb 2020 • Friends
A fabulous museum. So much to see. You really need about 4 hours to explore. We saw a great exhibition about the melting ice caps. The museum looks at every aspect of Nordic life, from food to clothing. An absolute must if visiting Stockholm.

Nice introduction to swedish life and history
Jan 2020
The museum was huge so you should take at least 3-4h. There were different displays on all of the floors. The building itself is already worth seeing. The displays are constantly changed to make it fun to revisit and see swedish life and history from different angles. There were displays about swedish history,traditions, toys, food, fashion, architecture and so on. Also the special ICE exhibit was really cool and beautiful. The admission fee was really worth the money compared to some of the stockholm's museums, students discount was also available. There was also a cafe and a gift shop where you could buy local handcraft( wooden carvings, foods, drinks, clothings etc) instead of random knick knacks

Beautiful building, average museum
Nov 2019
There were a lot of 'things' in this museum, but not a lot of information about then or why they were so important to Swedish culture. The building itself is gorgeous inside and out and the polar exhibit was very interesting.

Worth going but set appropriate expectations
Dec 2019
It's a museum inside of a castle, nothing more. The exhibitions were informative, though some were oddly irrelevant (British, dollhouse, etc). Plan on 2hrs. Has some modest accommodations inside. Worth doing but don't plan a trip specifically around this alone.

Sami and Arctic exhibitions were my favorite. Statue of Vasa gave me perspective for the rest of my holiday in Sweden.

Very good exhibitions
Dec 2019 • Friends
Really impressive building both outside and inside. Lot’s of exhibitions, really enjoyed the relevant and informative arctic exhibition on climate change. And the jewellery exhibition, not to mention the old dollhouses. Also enjoyed laying down and watching the mirror image video played against the roof. Nice with Technical aid so you get a free guided tour as per your own preference.
