  • A fine museum on Stockholm-on-site, well worth a visit. They have a great private tavelsamling and, among other things, an entire large room full of paintings by Skagenmålaren P S Kröyer. Well worth a visit.

  • A nice little museum that will take up a few hours of your time. It is predominantly oil on canvas spread around several different rooms. As the website will tell you, this focuses on Danish artists. From the standpoint of size and media, it reminded me of the Frick collection in New York City.
  • Beautiful paintings in beautiful surroundings with a friendly staff. Unfortunately not a family friendly museum.
