  • This museum is large and, with the entire island story so take your time. Did not have great expectations of the visit but was more a surprised by the quality and extent of the exhibitions. There is also a relatively large play and learn section at the top of the Museum which is well worth a visit if you have children with them.

  • Museum that reflects well the old media. Where account with details the life, politics, values of the time. With genuine parts! Worth a visit without a hurry!

  • Really nice museum in beautiful Visby! We especially liked the room with Gotland's picture stones and the room with fossils. We were surprised how big the Museum is, we went about over 2.5 h-so very very interesting to see!

  • This island is very impressive, you can see most of it here. A must!
  • Want to see Viking rune stones? This is the place to be. They have some fantastic ones. Also most of the museum is hands on, so children or easily bored adults will have a great time.
  • It is great to see as a once off.
  • Great museum but not the most obvious way to go through.
