Museum of Modern Art

Moderna Museet Stockholm

Moderna museet, the Museum of Modern Art, Stockholm, is a state museum located on the island of Skeppsholmen in central Stockholm, that was first opened in 1958. Its first manager was Pontus Hultén. On May 2010, Daniel Birnbaum became the new director of the museum.

The museum houses Swedish and international modern and contemporary art, including pieces by Picasso and Salvador Dalí and a model of the Tatlin Tower. The museum's collection also includes key works by artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Louise Bourgeois, Niki de Saint Phalle, Henri Matisse and Robert Rauschenberg, as well as ongoing acquisitions by contemporary artists.

Between 1994 and 1998, the museum was temporarily moved while the building in Skeppsholmen was rebuilt by the Spanish architect Rafael Moneo. The Pontus Hultén Study Gallery was designed by Renzo Piano. The museum's restaurant is also famous on its own and popular due to its beautiful location.
