Group of 1 adult and 3 teenagers, Free of charge entry. Reading about this museum on other sites recommends it will take about 2 hours to look around i would say allow more like an hour and thats pushing it a little. Not really much too look at although the figures were very realistic.

Probably all the tourists in Stockholm are passing nearby but not all of them notice it. It's not difficult to find. There are guided tours in English(14:00) and everything is free. Our guide was a Historian girl named Sara who responded to all our questions with patience. You learn how the city was founded and interesting and horrible facts about... More

We couldn't believe there was no admission fee for this excellent museum. Full of fascinating exhibits telling the story of Stockholm. Well worth a visit.

With a particular interest in medieval history, I found this museum worth the 10 minutes it took to walk through. There are some interesting visualizations and historical notes. Little difficult to find as it is under the bridge. I may have felt different if I had to pay an entrance fee . Worth the quick visit.

My wife an I spent about 90 minutes in this museum. It gives a good history about the early development of Stockholm with display and mock up "villages". I really enjoyed see the old city walls there were unearthed and the city history. My wife liked learning more about how the people lived. The great part of the museum is... More

Since the old walls of Stockholm cannot be seen anyone other than at this museum, it's kind of fun to stop by, especially since it is free. The museum doesn't take long, the exhibits are nicely done. I especially liked the remains of the 500 year old ship.

The entrance to this museum is located on a small island between the main portion of Stockholm and Gamla Stan. The museum is well designed, informative, and it's even free - a plus for a frugal person like me. There are numerous exhibits in the museum that give a good idea about life (and death) in medieval Stockholm. The exhibits... More

Tucked away under a bridge & next to the castle on Gamla Stan -- on that little island between Gamla Stan & the city -- this well-designed (and recently upgraded, I believe) museum has lots to offer visitors. It traces the emergence of Stockholm from a small trading post, then a fortification & trading city, and finally a full-blown city.... More
