  • Great museum with a lot of sculptures and things to see. Hidden away under a bridge is where you'll find it, it's free which is great if you're on a budget.  more »
  • We walked in circles around Parliament until we realized where the entrance was. This is a little gem! Between the life-size dioramas and the tiny recreations, this museum is geared to children and ad...  more »
  • The family's five members (two adults and three children at 5-12 years) got a maximum of 3 quarter to go in this not very exciting museum. Quick set, quickly forgotten, unless one is particularly interested in the historical period.

  • Free entry. Small exhibition with a concise story telling of mediaeval Stockholm. Great for kids. Toilets and a small shop at the entrance. We spent over an hour at the exhibition.
  • The Museum of Medieval Stockholm, is centrally located near Royal Palace, it was constructed around old excavated in an extensive archaeological dig that took place in the late 1970. I have visited the museum few times a good place to hangout with friends and family with a nice cafe outside near the water. Happy Visiting.
  • Very nice museum of medieval history of Stockholm. really impressive exhibits, and it's free to visit! Definitely worth going :)
  • The museum really impressed with the amount and quality of various exhibited items. Being free to enter, I expected the museum to have a lackluster showing of a few rooms with a few items in glass cases, but instead the museum features several excavated items from the region, life size models of a medieval house and knights etc, remains of a section of wall and several dioramas related to Stockholm in the medieval period. Definitely a place to visit if the subject (Medieval Stockholm/the medieval time) is interesting to you.
  • Excellent museum very interesting and as a free venue is just great value. I highly recommend it.
