One of the best museums I've seen, in terms of valorization, exhibit, museography. Based on a common pretext, a vivid image of the way of living in the Middle Age is presented in front of our eyes, that manages to combine the perfect amount of pedagogy and fun. The ideal way of learning.

This museum felt like an opportunistic pop-up museum - "Oooh, we've dug up some bits and pieces while constructing a car park...let's build a museum!" There isn't much here to see, but they have done a great job of reconstructing typical homes & shops from the period.

This museum, which is free, is quite interesting, and we'll set-up for children. There are lots of interactive exhibits. The main exhibit is a ship dating from the 16th century, which can is accompanied by lots of interesting information about the shipping trade and ship building at the time. There are also several reconstructed houses which you can go into... More

Given that's it's free and located so close to many other attractions, it is definitely worth a visit. The museum is on the small side, but many of the exhibits are well done. It covers some of the early history of Stockholm in an engaging manner - especially for families (we're an adult couple and enjoyed it). I wish the... More

It is a cute, small museum right in the middle of Stockholm. It is free of charge, has many interactive objects, my kid loved it, you can visit a medieval house, see how cathedrals were built, learn about medieval clothing and variuos medieval jobs. It takes about 1hour to see everything.

The location is much more interesting than the museum itself. It's free, so I'd recommend visiting it anyway. Note that it opens at 12. Inside you will find some installations about medieval Stockholm, but I don't think that they're real. Almost everything looks artificial.

After my visit I was so glad having paid an extended visiti to this beautiful museum. There is a very good historical overview over the way of living in the very past ages until today. In very logical and instructive construction, one walked really in the past, felt in the past and then little by little the present times came... More
