  • A very well organised museum which I give 5 plus. Very interesting and it was absolutely gorgeous. We also met an older man who presented the exhibition and who were on hand to ask. I also give him 5 plus. Meeting with him made it even more interesting.

  • An interesting museum on the river Klarälven. Hear brought the memories of military service, there are a number of tanks and howitzers on the farm that is exciting to see mm. Worth a visit

  • The Museum was bigger than I thought and turned the armed forces ' performance during the 1900-century from different angles. It was also fun to shoot in the firing, always fun with interactive features!

  • Very interesting museum! I am not so interested in war, but this museum has a good mix of war (different wars e.g. WW I and WW II) and the development of swedisch life in the last 150 years. It's possible to interact and trying to shoot with a rifle or a anti-tank missile. Nice Café in- and outdoors and very friendly staff. Entry ticket cost SEK 80, which is ok.
  • This Military meusem is one of the best I've ever been too. I was lucky enough to meet a gentleman that works here and he took me all around on a personal tour. He was so happy to hear I was visiting from Canada. He went out of his way to show and explain all sorts about the exhibits. The young ladies at the front desk were very nice and spoke English well too. I was very impressed with the quality and realness of the displays. It's easy to see a lot of work has gone into this modern facility. They have a really good selection of Military toys, clothing, and other items that seemed reasonably priced. I would highly recommend this location if your interested the Military and it's history. This will be the first place I'll come to if I ever visit Karlstad again.
  • Great exhibits and info about Sweden from WWII to the Cold War. There's even interactive exhibitions where you can shoot with rifles and rocket launchers at large screens.
  • Much local military history well explained in one place, plus a helpful staff
  • Tells the story of Sweden during the Cold War through Värmland's own infantry brigade. But it's not just another military museum, there is a lot of background on what Sweden was like during the post-war period. Incidentally the explanatory texts are all in excellent English as well as Swedish (said he modestly who translated them!).
