4 museums for the price of one which you can visit over a week. A few rooms are effected by refurbishment but doesn't really matter with so much to see. But busy

I visited the royal palace and really enjoyed it. There are a lot of steps though so would recommend comfortable shoes! We visited the treasury, living quarters and guest quarters which were beautiful. Worth a trip!

'Ello chaps! The Royal Palace is the historic palace used by Royals of former days, not to be confused with Drottningham, where the current royals reside (and also open to the public). The Royal Palace is historic and has much to explore, although beware, there...More

If you're exploring Gamla Stan, you have to check out the Royal Palace. You can tour the royal apartments, treasury, and armory with your single ticket. They have preserved a great deal of artifacts from 1500 and before!

Did not do the tour. Sweden overall is beautiful. The Royal Palace is on a central area surrounded by beautiful scenery.

Certainly something to visit for first time Stockholm/Swedish visitors. It does take a few hours to see the entire palace and surrounding areas so plan you tour wisely.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)

Yes, there is a charge. I went as part of a group - and so the price I paid would not necessarily be the same as the going rate. I think you should budget to spend at least USD30 per person for entry to both these places.

Unfortunately you have to pay. But once you buy you have four days to look at other museum as well.
