  • Never back again! Typical Swedish biased historical approach, no information, just slogans. Please make sure your kids are aware of real history in other way.  more »

  • Wonderful place to visit. Lot many things about history, weaponry used in the past, uniforms, tools used and many guns that are from 1800. Demonstration was good and people will find much time to roam around. Will get to know about coins, currency, etc. Kids will definitely love this place. Have lockers to keep out personal belongings.
  • Nice museum. Interesting topics. All texts are translated to English. Audioguide with app (bring your own headphones). Learn about the history of war and about Sweden. And all for free.
  • We went here with no expectations and got overwhelmed! Exhibitions where very interesting an personal. Not that "wary" as we thought. I'll definitely Go back again.
  • One of the best museums I've been to. It's perfect for families as the little one can get one or try some of the exponents. It's an interesting and well structured museum, I would recommend it!
  • For a country that hasn’t formally had a war in over 200 years, they somehow nevertheless found enough information to fill a military museum. Interesting replicas and exhibits, costumes and hyper-realistic mannequins. And greater insight into what it truly means to remain neutral during a war that engulfed the continent. Not to mention, on the day we went all of this well-presented history was free!
