An interesting look at the excavations found under central Stockholm. The actual museum seems geared to explain to children what life in medieval Sweden was like.

It is a nice museum and free of charge! The design of the museum makes us going back to medieval time of stockholm in different areas. The museum is not big so you only need about 1 hour for everything.

The museum has a great history of medieval times. The exhibits includes things the kids can climb on and go through with recreations of streets and models of what the city used to look like.
