  • Very interesting museum. You can touch some guns. It' pretty big. And free entrance. But you have to pay parking
  • A must go for anyone interested in army history, uniforms, war and weapons. Really cool setup and you can try on uniforms of different armies from different eras and also try out (lift) guns. There's also projectile penetration and entry/exit wound displays which are quite interesting. On top of all this, the museum is free!
  • Very good place to get to know about military history in Sweden. Really good place to a gun entushiast. You can buy souvenirs here. No ticket fee.
