Medelhavs Museet - Museum of Mediterranean and Near Eastern Antiquities, Stockholm: 5 reviews and 7 photos
The full title is the Museum of Mediterranean and Near Eastern Antiquities and just about sums up what you find in this museum which also has a nice cafe where there is sometimes related entertainment. The museum has a section on Greece and Rome which shows pretty much what you would expect, including a selection of Etruscan finds. Then there is one on Islamic art of various kinds. The collection from the Near East includes findings from a Swedish dig in Iran and treasures from Babylon. An Egyptian collection has mummified cats and lots of things from Egypt up until the Christian era and a portrait of a pharaoh that was given as a gift from Egypt when Sweden helped with the Asswan dam. There is also a Gold room which is only open on request but which has lots of treasures, including Etruscan jewellery.
