The Strindberg Museum (Swedish: Strindbergsmuseet) is a museum in Stockholm, Sweden, dedicated to the writer August Strindberg and located in his last dwelling, in the house he nicknamed "Blå tornet" (The Blue Tower) on 85, Drottninggatan, at the corner of Drottninggatan and Tegnérgatan on Norrmalm, Stockholm. The Museum is owned by the Strindberg Society of Sweden and was inaugurated in 1973.

Strindberg moved to the house in 1908 and lived there until his death in 1912. The Museum consists of Strindberg's flat and library, as well as an area for temporary exhibitions. Wallpapers and other decorations have been reconstructed in accordance with how the flat looked at the time the writer lived there, but furniture and other details are original.
