  • The army museum of Sweden is situated in the Centre of Stockholm. You can enjoy a free pass here to learn all about the history of Sweden its warfare. The museum is very good care for and offer a good mix of information and interaction. It is a museum of war tries to highlight what the both sides and certainly a good picture Sweden boasts of its position in the wars of the middle ages to the present. Definitely worth it!

  • I absolutely loved the army museum, not only is it free which is always good it also cover mainly on the top floor an very interesting part of Swedish history. The museums top floor looks at the history of Swedish conquests and wars up until just before WW1. I found this amazingly interesting as a lot of this was history that isn't very well covered in the rest of Europe. The Museum does a great job of immersing you in the story of Sweden as a young state and both me and my girlfriend were engrossed. A must see in Stockholm.
  • Many exhibits, a must see for anybody interested in militaria or Swedish history in general. Or if you just want to see a lot of old cannons.
  • Fantastic place if you like military and history. 3 levels of free exhibitions will take you from the past to the present military technology, and there are many things that you can touch or use.
  • It's free to enter and learn some history!
  • Really cool museum, quite big and lot of timeless exhibitions. Its admission free in 2016, all text is in English and Swedish and the staff is very helpful. Beware that its not for the fainthearted, there is slightly goreish in the exhibitions. It's war museum after all. Wifi password is warandpeace.
