Art sights in Stockholm
- Sort by:
Well worth the effort to reach it, beautiful Millesgården was the home and studio of sculptor Carl Milles, whose delicate water sprites and other whimsical sculptures dot the city landscape. The grounds include a crisp modern gallery for changing exhibitions of contemporary art, Milles’ elaborately Pompeiian house, and an exquisite outdoor sculpture garden, where items from ancient Greece, Rome, medieval times and the Renaissance intermingle with Milles’ own creations. There’s also a museum shop and a cafe. Take the metro to Ropsten, then bus 207.
If you’re in town February to mid-March, the Vårsalongen Art Show held here is a fun place to shop for high art and kitsch from both new and established Swedish artists. Otherwise, come for the neoclassical architecture, Carl Milles statues by the entrance and top-notch temporary exhibitions of modern art, which range from video, photography and sculpture to painting, drawing and etching.
