    It is by chance that we stumbled upon the Museum of middle age and what a surprise? It's free! For a few crowns you can rent an audio guide (in French please!) What is rare in Stockholm). You can experience life in the middle age in Stockholm, of old streets replenished with beautiful models of waxes very well made, so still lots of other things. I strongly advice. Good visit!

    A beautiful reconstruction of how it was made Stockholm in the middle ages, museum well maintained and full of details. It's small, so you visit in less than an hour.

    Been here sooner but had the benefit of going here again. Free entry. You could rent audio guide for more detailed descriptions (20) around the objects but worked good to go without. The most interesting thing to look at was the well-made wax figures that made their medieval chores in Sins booths and areas. And the old Stockholm wall as there are still parts of it. And even a few bargains they found recently when they dug up the lock. Worth a visit! Well they are not built any parking garages to the parliamentarians on the 1970 's which meant here but let the walls remain and turned it into a museum.

  • First it's free, so it's already a good idea. The displays are interesting and educational for both children and adults. The space is well designed and planned so you can digest the material in an hour or so.
  • Very nice to see a deep and comprehensive history of a place well represented, with models, mock-ups and artefacts. Very knowledgeable and relevant. This place will leave you with an impression.
  • Nice museum, which informs about life in medieval Stockholm. The presentation of the exhibits is nicely and carefully done. Entrance is free, which is a nice bonus.
  • Another amazing free museum in Stockholm for the whole family. Gives a great feel of what Stockholm was like with many things kids can interact with. My 6-year-old and I went back twice during our stay in Stockholm.
  • Great museum built underground, with a knowledgeable crew who are open to questions about the exhibits. You can even wear pieces of an actual suit of plate armor.
