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.

The Medieval Museum is reached at the foot of a flight of steps near the parliament building. Passing through a small shop you descend a short corridor into a large area excavated from underneath the Helgeandsholmen island. It includes a 55m long stretch of the original city wall, but is largely given over to a number of reconstructions of how... More

We stumbled across this one by total chance. It started to rain and we saw a sign for a museum. It was free to enter, donations accepted I believe, and is quite a small venue but really gave a good picture of how the area was populated and founded. It is not particularly exciting, i.e. may not keep kids occupied... More

This Museum is located under the Norrbro (Northern) bridge, nearby the Royal Palace. Watch out for the sign "Medeltidsmuseum". The old centre of Stockholm used to be here. Its very easy to imagine yourself right in the midst of the Middle Ages as the Museum is designed so that visitors walk through the Medieval town, enter some of the houses... More
