It started as a free - entrance walking - in and passing by - it turned out to be a very interesting visit deep into the History! Especially we were astonished to see real money from post - war, extremelly inflated Germany. Unexpected impressions are always the best ones :)

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 most of the big museums. There's a history of money and what's claimed to be... 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 the currency across the world. The "feather" money roll, the 17 Kg copper "coin" and... 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!

This incredible small museum, free entry, is part of the Royal Palace complex. Look for it if coins and money float your boat. The is also free audio guide and lockers (put in krona which is returned). Not just Swedish money, but American, European and others. Very helpful staff. You will be very happy you went - I went in... More

I passed along here by chance, and decided to take a sneak peek. I could not see entrance fee so walked just walked in. There are really many different coins from the right start (those were actually stones) to the modern paper notes. On the upper floor there is an exhibit with Sweden's history on their entrepreneurs. It is a... More

Free - always a good start. Plenty of effort put into displaying coins in an interesting, yet adult, way. Largest coin in the world.

Firstly this is one of very rare museums in Stockholm (otherwise expensive city) where there is no entrance fee. The museum is spread across three floors where there are collections of coins and currencies across the globe. The coins and currency are not just limited to Sweden or Scandinavia but coins and currencies from all over world are on display.... More

Located across the street from the popular and crowded museums by the royal palace, this museum is interesting with lots of money from prehistoric times to present, free of charge!

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
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) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
