Lovely exhibitions and lovely staff. Some really interesting exhibition design with drawers to pull out and a variety of ways to get information. Definitely recommended.

Although the Museum is a little difficult to locate, a visit is well worth the effort. The Museum is interesting and well organized with explanations in Swedish and English. But the Holocaust Exhibition was a disappointment as all the explanations were in Swedish only. This...More

Small and hard to find but well worth it, English translations are very good. Learn about Swedens relationship with its Jewish citizens past and present. A little overpriced at 80sek each for what took us half an hour to get round.

The museum has only two large rooms, one displaying a wonderful collection of Judaica, with its provenance and background clearly explained in (mostly) both Swedish and English. There is even an infamous yellow star, which European Jews were forced to wear by the Germans. A...More

We were intrigued by the thought of a Jewish Museum in Sweden, with such a small Jewish population. The museum is small, too, but the space and the exhibits are designed to beautifully display the history and primary hallmarks of Jewish life in Europe. We...More

combination of a central location, tranquility, and
beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and
eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s
most sought-after place to live. If walking through
this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy
tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s
