Museums During the Holidays 2012/13

(EDIT: Click here for the list of museums for 2014-2015!) If you are coming to Stockholm during the holidays and want to get a little cultural, you don't have to worry... there is always at least one museum open each day! While there are about 80 museums in Stockholm, I thought I would list which days the larger museums are open/closed to help you plan your trip.

  • Skansen- open every day!
  • Vasa Museum- closed the 23rd, 24th, 25th of December as well as the 1st of January.
  • Fotografiska (photography)- closed on December 24th.
  • Moderna (modern art)- closed December 24th, 25th & 31st and January 1st.
  • National (classic art)- closed December 24th, 25th and 31st.
  • Nordiska (nordic culture)- closed December 24th, 25th and 31st.
  • Historiska (history)- closed December 24th, 25th and 31st.
  • Nobel- closed December 24th, 25th & 31st and January 1st.
  • Medeltidsmuseum (medieval history)- closed December 24th, 25th & 31st and January 1st.
  • Naturhistoriska (natural history)- closed December 23rd and 24th.
  • Kungliga Slottet (royal palace incl. museums)- closed December 24th, 25th & 31st and January 1st.
Be aware that some of the museums have shorter opening hours on certain days. Double check with their websites (linked above) for opening hours. The changing of the guards at the Royal Palace takes place every day at 12:15pm except on Sundays as well as December 25th & 26th and Janurary 1st when it takes place at 1:15pm. Strömma's sightseeing basic bus and boat tours run pretty much as normal, double check their calendar on the website for specific tour information. If you are staying at the Rival Hotel, stop by and talk to me for more detailed opening hours as well as information regarding smaller museums.
