  • Bockstenmannen is really nice, but that is pretty much it for the museum. Most of the castle can be visited without paying the entrance, so just do that. From the top there is a good view of the town ...  more »

  • Beautiful and worthy visit medieval lock to the port of Varberg. Much to see. In high season, and guided tours by costumed actors that visitors and especially children enjoy life at that time in bun this castle. There is also a fine restaurant with spacious terrace.

  • Great historical Swedish Meseum
  • Was at the Varberg fortress to check the bocksten man's exhibition. It was very cool to see, certainly worth a visit! However, it was quite a small exhibition, all gathered in one room. Would have liked to have seen that made the exhibition around the items that are a bit larger, with more detailed information. Was also a little annoyed by some small things. For example, they have a video where they show how bocksten man took his clothes where he takes on another belt than the kind that one can see remnants of the booth, and they recovered the garments are sewn in a different kind of woolen fabric. Small details, but it bothered me because I was there just to check out the details, and it feels like it is expected that the museum cares about the "geeky details". Exhibitions was okay. Nice environment and really super nice staff.
