  • What a great museum! Beautiful on the outside and a treasure trove of little exhibitions all well curated all informative and interesting. A great place to explore and understand what is Sweden what is Stockholm. The temporary exhibitions are a true gems and one can choose and pick to ones heart content.
  • The grand entry and the plethora of exhibits make this museum a definitely must see. The self guided audio tour starts at the fourth floor and you work yourself down back to the main area. The theme behind with chronological order, from distance past, to recent history. There is something for everyone. Below the reception, there is a locker room to temporarily store backpack, and the gift store is full of adorable crafts
  • It is a nice museum for people loving history. To be honest, I expected a bit more from it as it is massive and it does not show as many things as expected. The entrance is quite cheap when comparing it to the other museums. Children younger than 18 year old can enter for free. I would recommend it if you have already seen all the other famous museums near this one.
  • The guy at the restaurant can read minds 😂. He knew I was going to get the meatballs. Kidding aside, this is why I love Stockholm! Friendly people everywhere who speak English. Very informative museum. My daughter loved the play house. If you have a Stockholm pass and if you have kids, it would be best to come over here.
  • If you have plenty of time in Stockholm and have the Stockholm pass, which includes entry for this, then pop in. But I wouldn't go out of my way to go there, or pay specially for the entry. It feels like a provincial museum, with quite a few displays of limited interest (depending on your own interests). I enjoyed the displays on dining throughout the centuries, and the furniture.
