This Museum is located next to a cute little park on the island next to the Royal Palace. Museum entrance is free. They do have audio guides available, however, I do not think they are necessary to learn the history of the excavation. The museum...More

While a bit hard to locate the entrance (integrated into the wall under the Norrbro), it is a cozy museum that has enough to be entertaining while not being overbearing. The free admission is also a massive plus.

This is a very interesting little museum showing the medieval history of Stockholm. I especially liked the dioramas which show how Stockholm has changed over the centuries. Plus it is free.

It is a small museum so we weren't in there for hours - we didn't do the audio tour so it might be longer then. We did read most of the information signs though and they were interesting to understand the whole idea. It was...More

The museum looks quite small from outside (entrance is from under a road bridge), but it's easy to spend here an hour or so. The museum is built on former excavation of medieval settlement. Parts of it are historic, while some exhibits are reconstructions; actually...More
