When I was young my favorite parts of going to school was the field trips. I mean who doesn’t love getting away from what you are suppose to be doing so that you can travel away for a little bit and try something new?! Well as it turns out when you grow up, and time becomes important these field trips become less fun. Today however was a little different, today we were going to Stockholm’s Modern Museum or I should say Moderna Museet. I was looking forward to going to this place and after all, part of going to a new country is learning the history and about the culture.

Now I understand we attend different places in the city so that we can see new things and learn more than just the language so please don’t think I’m complaining when I say I don’t like these trips as much as I did when I was young, because I do like them however sometimes I feel like I’m not as excited as I wish I was. This morning I woke up, got ready and decided to pack my camera with me this time. As it turned out it was well worth it because there was just so much to see at this place.

Right before we enter the exhibit we were greeted by a worker who’s job was to inform us about what to expect, how it was organized and what we could and could not do. Apparently in a Swedish Museum you cannot act like monkeys, play Angry Birds or listen to Justin Bieber touch the paintings so after listening to him we were on our way.

The museum was organized by photography, from old pictures taken many many years ago, to newer pictures taken within the past 1-5 years in one section.

And in another section there was only paintings. We were lucky to be there when we went because there was quite a few Monet painting which I found interesting to see.

Over all the two hours we were there I had a great time and was able to take these great pictures while I was there. Next time I’ll take my time and spend a few extra hours walking around and reading more about each picture and painting. I would recommend this to anyone in in Stockholm because the best part was the café near the entrance. I mean who doesn’t love a fika after seeing some of the puzzling pictures we saw?! Until next time I hope you enjoyed the pics. 🙂
