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 needs to be put right quickly. The entry fee is SEK 80 for adults with... 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 lady in charge offered to play the 30-min video on Jewish history in Sweden right then instead of waiting till 1:30pm. The video has English subtitle and gives you good understanding on Jews in Sweden from 18th century to modern time.... More

Considering Stockholm doesn't have a large Jewish population, it was nice to see the Jewish museum there with a decent collection of items and information. It seems that the purpose of this museum is more to inform non-Jews about the practices and symbols of Judaism, then to really embellish the history. However Jews and non-Jews alike will appreciate the section... More

This museum was showing an excellent documentary movie about the history of Jews in Sweden. Apart from the movie, the museum didn't really have a lot to offer. Some ceremonial objects which seem to have been randomly collected, some biographical displays about Jewish philanthropists with very little English commentary, some stray items relating to Raoul Wallenberg. Non-Jews might learn something.... More

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 helpful touch-screen timeline explains Sweden's actions and attitudes towards the Jews during the first half... 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 were greeted at the desk by two very friendly young people, and after browsing both... More

Interesting if you are interested in Judaica. One room and not much else. Hard to get to and then find

Though this museum isn't on a scale with those in other large cities, the space as been adapted to explain the immigration of Jews to Sweden. The collection is well described and individual pieces and exhibited well. An unusual use of space to give the history of the population and culture is well worth seeing and spending time to read....

Staying in Vasastan

Neighbourhood Profile
Vasastan
Vasastan is one of those neighborhoods that almost looks too good to be true. It has the winning 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 actually the film set of the famous Swedish children story Karlsson-on-the-Roof. No matter what season, Vasastan manages to impress in the sunshine, covered in snow and won’t even lose its charm when soaked in rain.
