The location is strategic, just next to Gamla Stan. Very easy to find, free entrance, places to sit inside to get a small rest. We saw a Viking ship inside. We saw many different and incredible little things, like the representation of a medieval village. It is located right below of the bridge. You can take the stairs, but there... More

I was expecting something "meh" and a time killer. It's great- lots to walk around and see, and even if you just pop in for a view of the original city wall and the discovered Viking boat it's worth it. We spent about 2 hours there. Bonus: IT'S FREE.

This is an interesting museum for all ages - lots of atmosphere and a great history lesson that you can't get from a school book.

We have really enjoyed this museum. It`s located directly in the city center. Actually, it`s visiting was not in our plans, we have just waited out a rain there. Also we were very tired, but the exposition was not exhausting, so it was ok! Recommend!

The staff is very friendly and everything is very visual. It's also easy to explore, experience and imagine as you can walk, touch and read about everything. The part about Slussen is particularly interesting for Swedish people and adults, learned something new!

I had read about this museum in an online travel blog and had it on the "if we have time list". I am so happy we did. This museum is fabulous as it takes you back to what life was like in Stockholm during Medieval times. No, it's not so much about knights and armour but more about daily life... More

We had no idea what to expect from this museum, but decided to give it a shot since there was no line-up and entry was free. As you walk in, there is a small gift store. We started right away with the exhibits, which were well explained and well made. We really enjoying the trip back in time it allowed... More

You don't need to spend too long here, but it's new and it's free, so you can't argue. For a medium-sized museum, it's pretty comprehensive, covering Stockholm's founding, agriculture, law, religion and craft. It's slightly obscured under the bridge it's on, but we didn't have too much trouble finding it. You need coins to put backpacks in the locker (coin... More

Amazing museum with no entrance fee that shows us the story of this great city, going back to post-viking occupation. See how people used to live back in the day and learn how was their daily work.
