The City Museum is closed for renovation, to reopen during autumn 2017 with a new permanent exhibition focusing on stories of Stockholm. New exhibition spaces mean that many never-before-seen objects can be displayed. Stockholm's history is an adventure, and you will get to experience it in a brand new way! During the time for renovation we organize public city-walks every day. Most of them in Swedish. You are always welcome to book a private guided tour in English. Available tours in English includes the historic Stockholm and the Old town, the Millennium tours (the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), ABBA City Walk, The World Heritage Woodland Cemetery and visits to The City Museums four historically restored apartments.

This museum covers the 'modern' period as opposed to the Medieval one, that is the history of the city from ca 1550 to modern times. It has a lot to show on a couple of floors. The location is strategic at the communication hub Slussen. The entrance ticket is combined with that for the Medieval museum. There is a lot... More

at Slussen, a busy corner in Stockholm, you find this museum showing Stockholm during centuries... Very interesting if you like history, but it also shows thoughts about the future

Stockholm City Museum offers a walking tour (The Millennium Tour) that ought to be separately listed by TripAdvisor as a tour rather than a museum. The Millennium tour costs about $20/person, lasts about 2 hours, and includes 6 stops around Sodermalm. Tickets are available at Stockholm City Museum, but the tour actually starts a few blocks away. Our tour guide... More

This is a great way to spend several hours getting the 'lay of the land' from Old Stockholm to the present day and projects for the future. They offer the Millenium Tour a couple of times each week and that was fun to roam the streets and familiarize oneself with the places from the books. Fun for fans of Steiger... More

We did visit the museum but mostly went for the tour. Our guide was great. She integrated spots from the books with the Swedish and American movies and learned some about Stockholm and Sweden along the way. It allowed us to see some of the places Larsson had in mind as he wrote the books. Really made us wish Stieg... More

Usually has great exhibits concerning Stockholm and it's history. They cater for the kids as well, both with information in the exhibits and a nice play area. Note that it is no longer free as it used to be though. Entrance is 70 SEK (which gives you access for a calendar year). They have information in English, but not for... More

This review is only for the Millennium Tour - I attended this tour after only viewing the Original Swedish movies. I think this tour would be great for someone that read the books because the guide did a really great job of explaining not only scenes and situations from the book but how they related to actual events that occurred...

Walked all the way around it before we found the entrance - signs not good. Admission was free. It isn't huge but packs a lot of interesting exhibits into a small space. Would thoroughly endorse it for anyone who has Stockholm ancestors, like me. You will certainly learn how your ancestors lived. Fun little children's area and there's a cafe... More

We stopped in here because we passed it during one of our walks - and it is free. This was a very interesting museum. Some exhibits more than others. It was interesting to see some historical aspects of Stockholm as well as how city life is evolving. If you have the time, this museum is definitely worth a stop. The... More

Staying in Slussen

Neighbourhood Profile
A unique mix of grotesque 1960s concrete urban vision and cosy historical Swedish brick houses, Slussen has become one of Stockholm’s most architecturally edgy and controversial neighborhoods. Plans to rebuild the area have been on the agenda for decades, however, so far no agreement could be reached, which is the reason for the continuing decay of its brutalist substance. Nevertheless, the museums and the main shopping street, Götgatan, attract both locals and tourists with Sweden’s most fashion-forward clothing retailers, hipster coffee shops and restaurants. Once the lights are out, the area turns into a bustling nightlife haven, catering to all preferences, from posh hotel bars to sweaty underground nightclubs. There is no better place to experience the clash between old and new Sweden.
