About the Museum


The Nationalmuseum is Sweden’s largest and most distinguished art institution, located on the picturesque Blasieholmen peninsula in central Stockholm. It is home to half a million drawings dating from from the Middle Ages to 1900, with a particular focus on Rembrandt and the Dutch 17th century. Count Carl Gustaf Tessin (1696–1770), who amassed an array of European paintings and drawings on his travels, contributed the bulk of the collection when the museum opened in 1792. Key works include Midwinter Sacrifice by Carl Larsson (1915) and The Kitchen Maid by Rembrandt (1651). While it is closed for refurbishment until 2018, the Nationalmuseum stages temporary exhibitions in the nearby Kulturhuset.
