When we visited, there were loads of kids outside being a Viking for the day with clothes, tents, crafts, the works. It looked great but we were sadly too old. Instead we looked at the Treasures in the Gold room and the rune stones and...More

We spent almost 6 hours here, there was so much to see, history from prehistoric Sweden right up to the modern day. We got so much out of it, it was really interesting and engaging. Nice little cafe as well.

We got caught in the rain right by the museum so decided to wait it out inside. The museum is free and offers a lot of interactive exhibits to keep kids engaged. Other than that though, it did not have too many unique items to...More

Accessible via on off tour transport. Allow at least 2 hours, we had to cut the medieval section short. Nice food options in...More

A pleasant stop on a walk through Stockholm. We spent our time in the medieval section with artifacts from Sweden. The section of the attack of Visby was a highlight. A extra plus for the free lockers.

This museum is free of charge. It is educational but not very exciting to be honest. We finished within 2 hours. If you have spare time in Stockholm, it is still a good place to go.

My expectations for this museum were higher than they should have been. It's lovely that it's free, so you can't really complain, but I was not really impressed. I really hoped for more from the Viking exhibit in particular.
