This museum was excellent and essentially takes you through Swedish wars and military history from approximately 1500s to the present day. There are lots of interesting things on display such as equipment, uniforms, guns and the like. You also have the opportunity to try on uniforms and pick up some of the guns if you want to. The accompanying information is also excellent and details everything in both English and Swedish. It’s recommended that you start on the 3rd floor and then work your way down (3rd floor starts in the 1500s with the 1st floor detailing WWII). It was free to enter and took us around 2-3 hours to go through everything. I would definitely revisit and would recommend you visit if you’re in the area.

One of the best military museums that I have visited. The Collection of uniforms and captured flags from the Great Northern War are truly remarkable and beautifully curated. The story of Sweden in war and peace is also accessible to a very wide audience and not just the military enthusiasts.

Interesting presentation of military history. I always wanted to learn more about Raul Wallenberg and how he helped get children out of Sweden and save them from the Nazis. I knew World War II produced alot of shortages, but the musuem explains what the Swedes did to deal with the situation. My girlfriend liked the collection of cannons.

So much to see, exceptionally well presented and with such colour. Personal gems are discovering during last war Sweden suffered with coffee shortages and had to bulk up their sausages with grain because pork in short supply. On the upside by 1943 with it clear which way things were going government were able to stand up to the Germans and stopped any more troop trains passing through their country on the way to war in Norway. "We shall fight them in the booking halls ...."
Heartily recommend, it won't disappoint.
