“Surprisingly Thoughtful”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

This is an examplary look at the nature of why armies exist - to conduct war...but asks the question - what is war all about? The answer is deeply conveyed and really inspires and provoked thinking about the widespread impacts of war. Really appreciated.

“I know what you are thinking: "Aren't they neutral?"”
Reviewed 26 April 2013

This is an interesting museum, dedicated as it is to the history of warfare (among mankind as a whole, in places). There is not a lot of patriotism here, but some interesting installations.

“Interesting museum”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

This was my first visit to this museum and I had very little time that day, but I loved it and will for sure come back and use much more time. They had several different exhibitions and one of them is called "Twice a stranger". It's about people born at one place and raised another place - twice a stranger.

“Nice army museum even for a not so military interested family”
Reviewed 30 March 2013 via mobile

Surprisingly interesting museum right in the center of Stockholm. Gives an background to war in general but also the history of Sweden. Nice, but a little bit expensive, restaurant.

“A good review of Swedish army history since 1600.”
Reviewed 9 February 2013

You need to take the audio tour as this really lets you dive into the exhibitions. A very good and thorough history of the Swedish army from 1600 to 1721. Then a quick overview of the 18th-20th century.
