Take the boat through the archipelago to visit Sweden's newest and perhaps most beautiful art museum, Artipelag, beautifully situated on Värmdö in Stockholm's archipelago. You travel with our classic archipelago ships M/S Gustafsberg VII. The journey through Skurusundet and the very narrow strait Baggenstäket is an experience in itself.

Magnificent Art Experience - Imagine monet
In Artipelag's spacious event hall Artbox, spanning over 1000 square meters, you will see a magnificent art experience like no other. The experience delves into Monet's universe, removing the boundaries and allowing you, as a visitor, to experience the artworks in an entirely new way. His timeless masterpieces are showcased using the latest technology, projected onto both walls and floors, accompanied by music. Claude Monet was born in Paris in 1840 and became one of the foremost representatives of Impressionism. The Impressionists were the first artists who sought to escape the confines of the frame, which restricted the artwork and isolated it from its surroundings.
Bus or boat back to Stockholm
We also recommed that you travel from Artipelag back to Stockholm with the boat.
All days of the week you can go back to Stockholm (City Terminal) with Artipelag's direct bus, or take the SL-bus back from the stop Hålludden by Artipelag. You then change bus by Värmdö Marknad and carry on to Slussen in Stockholm. The journey takes ca. 40 minutes.
