(EDIT: this is infor for 2010/11, for current info... click here!) Museums and other tourist sites have pretty generous opening hours during the holiday season. There is no day where eveything is closed! Here is a short list of the most popular museums and the days they are closed, which will make it easier for you to plan your stay in Stockholm!

Vasa Museum- closed December 23rd, 24th, 25th and January 1st.
Skansen- open 365 days a year!
National Museum- closed Mondays, December 24th, 25th and 31st as well as January 1st.

Stockholm City Museum- closed Mondays, December 24th, 25th, 31st and January 1st. They are still offering the Stieg Larsson Millenium tour on Christmas Day and New Years Day, but be aware that you need to buy tickets ahead of time as the museum is closed.
