Small museum dedicated to the dance and especially to the history of the Swedish ballet. Only for fans of the topic, not for generic tourists. Audio guide via smartphone only in Swedish. Free Wi-Fi available.

Amazed to see the founder's passion in dance and his collection of dance related items from all around the world. Small but a performing arts lover would enjoy it.

This is a very nice and good museum located in a beautiful building, with a lot of historical peaces from the dance history. Sweden has played an important role in the history of dancing and here you get to see it!
