The art collection consists of painting and crafts from the 1800s to modern times, often local or national. You'll explore three floors of Viking and medieval artifacts, gold and silver treasures found on the island, paintings by the well-known Richard Bergh, and an exhibit on the Battle of Gotland.

    Had heard good about this because the low score. The info I got earlier was that you would get your own headphones and then a similar guide. But this was not the case. Maybe a wrong information before. Much to read.

    We are avid museum goers and had never seen picture stones before. Some were stunning. The museum is beautifully organized and things are well displayed. It's a small museum but well worth a visit.  more »

  • Very big museum a lot of things to see
  • 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.
  • This island is very impressive, you can see most of it here. A must!
  • Those stone tablets on display are so interesting.
  • It is great to see as a once off.

Where to stay in Visby

What Visby lacks in accommodations, it makes up for in charm with its medieval houses, cobblestone streets, and churches--not to mention the preserved medieval wall and abundance of roses. The moderate to upscale hotels in the city center tend to fill up quickly, so be sure to book in advance. There are also a handful of guesthouses and pensions, along with a very limited selection of hostels. If you're open to a bit of a drive, look to the south to the town of Burgsvik, a resort town with more accommodations.
