Wetterling Gallery

Located in the heart of the city, the Wetterling Gallery hosts eclectic exhibitions round the year, with artists from both within the country and outside of it participating. The Wetterling Gallery is deemed as one of the most prestigious galleries in the contemporary art space, and is known to feature art work in varied forms, be it sculpture, photography or paintings. Throughout the year, the Wetterling Gallery is known to host at least seven exhibitions in its space, and it also participates in nearly four international art fairs.

Bonniers Konsthall

Contemporary art gallery Bonniers Konsthall takes up an area of 1890 square meters, of which almost half of the area is exhibition space. This is a non-profit venue, run by The Bonnier family, with the aims of promoting up-and-coming artists and giving established artists the opportunity to display their newest projects. The gallery also houses Café No 19, where they serve first rate lunches and provide free wireless internet.

Moderna Museet

The Moderna Museum, located across the bridge from Skeppsholmen, is one of the most interesting museums in the city. The building itself is highly acclaimed for its clean aesthetic lines, open spaces and brilliant use of natural light. Many of the exhibitions create a powerful cocktail of provocative, shocking, confusing and fantastic elements, and it is possible that you may feel a bit dizzy in the spacious rooms, especially with works that force the audiences to re-evaluate space and dimensions. On the whole, the museum is a challenging but rewarding place to visit. It houses an excellent collection of both Swedish and international modern art, including many familiar pieces by Warhol, Duchamp, Matisse and Picasso. You can also spend several hours in the photography library, and the comprehensive gift shop. Please check the website for timings.

The Thielska Gallery

The Thielska Gallery was an estate, which belonged to Ernst Thiel, a successful banker and one of Stockholm's most visible art patrons. Post World War I, he lost most of his fortune as the stock market crashed, and his estate and art works were bought by the state. Now, apart from temporary exhibitions, his permanent collections, which include work by Strindberg and Munch are on display. This gallery has turn-of-the-century feel and is certainly worth a visit.
