Great little museum in honour of August Strindberg, writer, artist, chemist etc. The museum house the apartment where he spent his last years, his library and a smaller exhibition covering various themes. You don't have to be a huge Strindberg fan to enjoy it, it covers both the basics of his life and details that the more serious fans will... More

It's one of those places that people need to visit to begin or enhance their understanding of Strindberg's place in Swedish culture. Tucked away near the top of Drottninggatan, a pedestrianised street with Strindberg quotes in brass letters set into the road surface, and with restricted opening hours, this museum is not the easiest to visit - but it's worth...

The museum is small but carefully organized, and includes the well preserved last living quarters of this prolific, complex and controversial writer, painter, photographer, and pseudo-scientist. A particularly good job is done to connect Strinberg's writing with his life story. While most displays are in Swedish, some major texts are also in English, and the 20 minute biographical video has... More

First of all I would like to say that the apartment part of the museum is great, just like walking into this amazingly talented man's home. But the exhibition (the signs and videos) are all in Swedish, so unless you book a guide there is very little to read.

Located on one of Stockholm's most famous shopping streets (Queen's Street). In a pedestrian area where the small shops are far more interesting than the brand stores on the same street, closer to the railway station. Some good coffee shops around. Great building, fantastic elevator, art nouveau stylish, built in the beginning of the 20th century, the first with central... More

Being a bit of a fan of Strindberg this museum was always going to be on my to-do list but I found it far more interesting than expected. The museum combines Strindberg's last house - his desk left as it was when he died - and his next door neighbour's apartment that is contains the exhibition. The building is amazing,... More

We went here a few days ago and it's a lovely little museum, especially taking the old style lift to the top. Most if the info is in English so brush up on your Swedish! One major point that annoyed us was the older lady with glasses at the reception. We must have waited in front if her for about... More

We did the tour, which is available at a modest price, and our guide was knowledgeable and welcoming. Lots of items on display accompanied by descriptions that offer visitors an insight into Strindberg's life. The highlight of the tour was Strindberg's library upstairs. For those keen to learn even more, there are movie sections available. After your visit, you might... More

The museum is up several flights of stairs in a vintage apartment building - there is an elevator but it wasn't clear whether or not it was working. You can't enter Strindberg's front door, you enter through a side door, put booties on your feet and can walk through his last apartment, complete with sound effects (you can hear the... More
