By far, one of the best photo museums hands down! Oct 25, 2017
You'd never guess what's in this treasure chest as you approach it. Set by a set of ol' warehouses and today's cruise ship shops, the areas around it (well, and this building, from the outside) have seen better days. Leave your presumptions and step inside... and you step into a whole new world....

The Photography Museum of Sweden showcases temporary exhibits from photogs all over the world - ranging from political, educational and just, well, entertainment. Set over a sprawling 4 floors, the museum is well lit. The space between the photos is very generous, thus people don't crowd around a photo, but can browse without feeling suffocated, or feeling the need to leave soon.

The staff is extremely friendly. There are great facilities as well - cloak room and washrooms in the basement, and a cafe at the very top. Free wifi throughout the building.

I happened to see some very interesting exhibits - one was around war torn victims which was somewhat sad. But things lightened up with a very interesting exhibition - what Sweden was doing when Trump was announced Prez! It was photos of mums picking up kids from school, family picnics, etc. but a very interesting concept. They had a little old colour TV looping his inaugural speech.

There was another nice one on food wastage (see photos).

All in all, this is one of the better photo galleries I've been to. Very thoughtfully arranged so one has that time and space to absorb the moment, than other cram'y art exhibitions I've been to in the past.
