Lonely Planet review

The epic Nordiska Museet is Sweden’s largest cultural-history museum and its second-largest indoor space. The building itself is an eclectic, Renaissance-style castle designed by Isak Gustav Clason, who also drew up Östermalms Saluhall. Inside you’ll find a sprawling collection of all things Swedish, from sacred Sami objects to fashion, shoes, home interiors and even table settings. The museum boasts the world’s largest collection of paintings by August Strindberg, as well as a number of his personal possessions. In all, there are over 1.5 million items dating from 1520 to the present day. Topping it off are the often dynamic temporary exhibitions. The insightful audio guide (Skr20) offers several hours of English commentary.
