Definite lack of recent history. They have plenty of material but it's not really joined up into any story.

We only managed to see some of the museum's sections, but it was all so impressive, stunningly arranged and engaging. I believe this is one of the many musts to see once in Stockholm.

I thought the layout of the museum and general chronological layout was well designed. Felt too much of the space was given over to the pre-historic man. Definitely wanted more of the viking history and culture.

It had been years since I had visited the historical museum, and the displays had been changed, but it was still very interesting.
