Modern Art Museum, Stockholm..


I have decided while living in Stockholm, I must visit all the free museums. So one fine Friday evening, I took a pendeltåg to Stockholm central station and bus 65 from there which took me to the last stop moderna museet! It is located in a beautiful island called Skeppsholmen. I walked  towards the Baltic first to see the amazing view and after strolling around a bit, headed back to the museum. The bus actually drops you in about 100 meters from the museum which is pretty awesome. This is one thing wonderful in Stockholm, all museums have a busstop in their name which is almost at the doorstep of them.

After clicking few outside snaps, I entered the museum. The reception guy gave me directions. It is a small museum with few wings in level 1 and 2-3 wings in the zero level. “The Museum shows selected works that are changed and reinstalled continuously. This means that you might see something different on each visit. ”

Overall, if you are interested in modern art and photography, abstracts and complex thought process of modernism,  it is a good choice of museum in Stockholm. The entry is free and there are couple of other museums around. Tuesday /Friday are good days to visit, as it is open till 20.00 pm at night. There is a very nice cafe with reasonable price inside. Temporary and special exhibitions cost extra kronor.
