Stockholm: Skeppsholmen

Outside the Moderna Museet

My favorite museum in Stockholm is the Moderna Museet, or the modern art museum. I love it so much that I’m a ‘friend’ and have a membership where I can visit all of the exhibitions throughout the year! The Moderna Museet is located on the small island of Skeppsholmen and feels like a mini-escape from the city – surrounded by trees and water!

Other than visiting museums, there isn’t so much to do on Skeppsholmen. Luckily there’s a really nice bar, af Chapman, a full-rigged steel ship moored on the island, where you can enjoy a drink and a beautiful view (and I only now found out it’s a hostel as well!).
