The outside of this gallery looks a bit like a prison, when it was built in 1916 it was the height of modern fashion, a warehouse-esque space with huge sky lights and high windows.  This design, and the varied sized galleries make it one of the most suitable exhibition spaces in Sweden, which is why it hosts some of the world's best modern art exhibitions – they're very into multimedia or art in any medium, and the varied gallery spaces in the design have proved the architect, Carl Bergsten's, foresight.  

If you're visiting Stockholm in February or March come for the Vårsalongen Art Show, where you can buy modern art, from its most high brow to its most kitsch, from new and established Swedish artists.  

Admire the Carl Milles statues by the entrance on your way in.
