Moderna Museet Collection

Stockholm

What is the Moderna Museet collection? A wonderful way to travel in time, art and ideas. Here, you will find some of the world’s finest art, modern and contemporary, Swedish and international, including key works by the most prominent artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.

See selected works

The Museum shows selected works that are changed and reinstalled continuously. This means that you might see something different on each visit. In The Collection presentation you can experience contemporary and older work in a variety of techniques and by different artists, including photographs, paintings, sculptures, installations, moving images, prints, textile works, artist books and art that defies categorisation or description of technique.

Guided tours, performances, artist talks, symposia and many other events and activities explore the contents and narratives in The Collection.

Search The Collection

It would be impossible to show all the 140,000 works in The Collection at once, so we regularly change the art in our exhibition rooms.

The Collection belongs to the Swedish people

Moderna Museet buys art for our shared cultural heritage, and The Collection is owned by the Swedish people. The Museum’s job is to collect, preserve and show art representing the period from the early 20th century  to today, and the photographic collection, which begins with the birth of photography in the mid-19th century.
