Only in Kulturhuset, a central culture house and theater in Stockholm, you could spend the whole day, but I have been to Moderna Modern Art museum, Japanese museum, Nordic Museum, Royal Academy of Arts, and so on. The evening and night is super vibrant and fun, and full of stunning art events.

A Glimpse into Stockhom Culture Night (Kulturnatt) History

The roots of Kulturnatt can be traced back to the late 1980s when cultural institutions across Stockholm first opened their doors late into the night, offering free access to exhibitions, concerts, and activities. Since then, Kulturnatt has grown into a city-wide celebration, attracting tens of thousands of participants each year.

Kulturhuset: Celebrating 50 Years of Cultural Influence

In 2024, Kulturhuset on Sergels torg marks a significant milestone as it celebrates its 50th anniversary. Half a century of cultural influence and engagement is commemorated through a series of exciting events throughout the year. The anniversary year features a nostalgia-filled Culture Night, the exhibition “Loop av liv – art in a new era” created in collaboration with hundreds of Stockholmers, JR’s exhibition, and the release of a book about the house’s architecture. Special attention is also given to young people during this year’s reading holiday, with an additional investment in programming.

Japanese Museum: It has a super dj set and a hipster vibe there. I explored the rich history and traditions of Japan at the Japanese Museum, featuring exhibitions on Japanese art, cuisine, and craftsmanship.

Moderna Museet: Moderna Museet presents cutting-edge contemporary art from Sweden and around the world. Kulturnatt visitors can experience thought-provoking exhibitions and participate in artist talks and workshops. Also, there was a silent party there.
