  • 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.
  • 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!).
  • The museum theme is being a small country located in between the two military alliances. Visitors can walk around and touch the displayed artefacts, except some valuables which is displayed behind glass.
  • Helpful tools and weapons you can try on and feel. Fun for kids of all ages. Very interesting reading and glimpses of Sweden's military history.
