  • A small well hidden gem of a museum with a small gift shop and lockers (no cafe). This museum is FREE and well worth a look through. Perfect for children, as it’s set up with displays of how life was. Brilliant!
  • Very nice staff, interesting visit. Also good to note that it's free. Don't miss it!!
  • Small, but cute and interesting. Nicely decorate. Entry is for free
  • I thought the museum would have not many things to see, but I should correct my expectation. Even though it is a very small museum, it revived the medieval lives of Swedish people well and it provides rich exhibition with good English explanation. Great that I can enter here without paying anything. Also I got to respect Swedish people who, very keenly reinvestigate the land they are currently living in, found and preserve these historical artifacts.
  • This is an unexpectedly brilliant museum. It's free to enter, has plenty to see and does an excellent job of explaining and demonstrating life in medieval Stockholm. Well worth a visit.
