  • A weekday afternoon it wasn't crowded so there was plenty of room to read the signs. It was no problem to bring your stroller around. Nice and interesting exhibits and fun for kids.

  • 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.
