A former navy base that is now packed with interesting museums and great promenades. Among the museums on Skeppsholmen worth visiting are the Museum of Modern Art with one of the foremost collections of modern and contemporary art: Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Henri Matisse, among others. The Museum for Architecture is a museum and a center for dialogue and debate about the future of architecture and the city.. The view from the restaurant of the museum makes it a heavenly place to have a meal or a drink.
Next to the ArkDes and Moderna Museet, the East Asian Museum (Östasiatiska museet). Filled with artifacts from the Far East the museum overlooks the Stockholm harbor and the Royal Palace and is a popular destination for Stockholmers and tourists alike.
The old ships like the 19th century af Chapman sailing ship berthed on the southern shore and the small castle on Kasttelholm islet connected to the adjacent Skeppsholmen through the Kastellholmsbron bridge are a charming background for a beautiful stroll with good views of the city across the water. Peaceful & close to Gamla Stan this little island will be one of your favorites in Stockholm.
