A good find, with free admission and an excellent collection of coins and notes across time telling the history of money. Well worth a visit, but if you do, brush up on your Swedish because the exhibit translations are surprisingly less frequent than other museums.

There's a lot of money on show here, from Sweden and around the world, but - especially as admission is free - it is worth a visit if you are in the area of the old town (it's just to the North) and have seen...More

We went into this museum without much expectations except to see Sweden's historical curencies. It was free and we had time in hand. But then what I saw, makes me classify it as a "MUST SEE" in Stockholm. It actually catalogs global economic history with...More

Although not a must see the Royal Coin Cabinet was really interesting - history of money was fascinating and it was interesting to see all the ways we have figured out to pay each other!

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)

Hi, are the coins available to be seen and possibly photographed? I am in Stockholm for the next week and I said I would look them up, as I am involved in the Museum in Totnes and we have some Saxon coins dating back to the same period. Thanks.
