Södra Blasieholmshamnen 2, 111 48 Stockholm, Sweden
After five years of complete re-construction the New National Museum at Blasieholmen has opened its doors again and oh my... it was soooo worth the wait, beautiful grand stair cases, large open rooms, airy balconies and views to die for! Its arrived and it grand!
Sweden’s national museum of art and design holds fabulous collections of paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints, ranging from the 1500s to the present day and definitely worth at least half a day of your time to explore in ore.
And whilst you are there, why not pop into the museums stunning new restaurant as well, decorated and furnished with works by some of Sweden’s leading designers, with apparently over 80 artefacts designed especially for the restaurant and hosted by Fredrik Eriksson, one of Sweden’s top chefs, serving delicious Swedish food using gastronomic craft methods.
The end result is just outstanding and you will not be disappointed, the location is amazing too, right on the water’s edge and with views out to towards the Stockholm Archipelago.
