Stockholm, Sweden: Nordic Museum

Tourists who come to the Vasa Museum - and they come by the busloads - sometimes notice the nice building right across the parking lot. Well, at least we did, prompting this picture. As for knowing what it was, well, that required some investigation.

The Museum decided to study Swedish history in the Modern Age, putting the starting point at 1520. Then curators started collecting items, and collecting them, and collecting some more. As a result, the Museum now has more than one million items under control.

It's a big building, but not that big. Wonder where the warehouse is for the rest of the stuff?

Now, I couldn't fly around the building to get the best possible look at this building. But you can.
