Sculpture in Nature at ArtipelagStockholm has many great art museums, both big and small. If you are coming to Stockholm this summer, here is a list of the main art museums and what they will be showing. If art isn't your cup of tea, then there are many wonderful museums focusing on history that shouldn't be missed as well!Fotografiska (photography)- several great summer exhibitions including The New Black Vanguard (until Oct 2nd), Somewhere Ethereal (until Aug 21st) and Andy Warhol Photo Factory (until Aug 21st).National Museum (classic art & design)- Besides their wonderful permanent collection which always has free admission, they have several temporary exhibitions this summer, like What a Joy to be a Sculptor (until Sep 11th) and Swedish Grace (until Aug 28th). What a Joy to be a Sculptor at NationalmuseumPhoto by Anna Danielsson/NationalmuseumModernamuseet (modern art)- like the National Museum, their permanent collection always has free admission.

But they also have an indoor venue and this summer they will be exhibiting the art of both Madame d'Ora (until Sep 4th) and Anton Alvarez (May 21st to Sep 25th). Spritmuseum (spirits/adult beverages)- Their current art exhibition is Pierre et Gilles - Troubled Waters (until Sep 8th).

Otherwise, if you are staying at the Hotel Rival, stop by and ask us for more options and recommendations. 

View of StockholmPhoto by Ola Ericson/ mediabank.visitstockholm.comThis is the time of year when I usually post a calendar of major events, festivals and concerts happening in Stockholm for the year. Due the pandemic, I haven't been able to post this for the past two years. Well, I actually did post a calendar in the beginning of 2020... but everything was cancelled or postponed shortly after I posted it. But now the city is back in business (knock on wood) and events have returned to the calendar! Hopefully this list will be able to help you plan your visit. Stockholm ViewPhoto by Alexander Dokukin/ mediabank.visitstockholm.comKeep in mind that, even if the events aren't your cup of tea, they may impact your visit, For example, a marathon or other race will mean traffic and road closures, a popular event will mean busy hotels and restaurants and holidays may mean some business closures. The calendar will be an ongoing process and I will add more events as they become known. These are only the major events and festivals... if you are staying at the Hotel Rival, you can contact me directly for more information about smaller events that might be going on while you visit.
