  • An interesting Museum, presents not only the money Sweden and around the world. Huge coins weighing a few kilograms, small weightless, round, rectangular and even an egg shaped! Paper money also has many different, have different banks, counting cars, purses, etc. Anywhere before that did not have to see such a variety! The Museum is situated conveniently in the heart, not far from the Royal Castle. Recommend a visit.
