This is Sweden's largest art museum, with a collection that dates back to the 16th and 20th centuries. The collection has been gradually built through purchases, gifts and spoils of war, during the country's era as a military power in the 17th century. It includes fantastic paintings and sculptures by Rembrandt, Rubens, Boucher, Renoir, Degas and Gauguin and the Swedish masters Anders Zorn and Carl Larsson. There are also significant collections of drawings, engravings and handicrafts from the Renaissance to the present day. The museum should definitely be on your travel itinerary and even if you're not an art lover, the sheer beauty of the building is worth a look. Call ahead to know more.
