  • We have mainly historical pieces. Highly recommend any of the guided tours, where everything comes to life.

  • Gotland's history is fascinating and I learned a lot of new. For those interested in history, this is a must, the violent history, treasures and the Hanseatic League.

  • 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.
