  • Exciting and enjoyable visit for all the family. Beautiful views of the surrounding area. Lovely show where you got to see how the prisoners at the Fort had, in the meantime, it was used as a prison.

  • Was a short visit but worth it nonetheless. Lin Ferry over from Vaxön (Vaxholm) took a little over 2 min and cost 40 KR. Going around the tiny island of about 15 min. To the approximately 130 steps up the tower so you get a nice view around. Unfortunately, we did not go into the Museum, it closes at 17.00. It is privately owned & it's entry.

  • A fascinating museum with lots of interesting artifcats and well put teogether exhibits. Many rooms have a kids feature. The exhibits are factual and well constructed with great use of dioramas and animated features.
  • It's not so impressive fort . It's just like the one in any other country . If you are bored n don't have anything to do in summer, it's good to visit for the view . Nice point for photographers. But really not worth coming all the way from stockholm central to visit this especially on winter time!!!
  • 16th century fortress now housing a museum.
  • Great view!
  • For 40 KR, one crossing and it is possible to free the fortress look at. The view from the tower is worth! Absolutely worth seeing. The Museum will cost extra. But they cope well without. Toilet very clean and also free.
