  • The underground Museum, where the whole Viking ship, as well as the descriptive parts of the buildings. The wall texts in Swedish and in English. Free admission!

  • Very interesting to get acquainted with the story in an illustrative way. School textbooks give a drier image

  • 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.
