Located underneath the front lawn of the parliament building, this s the best bargain in the city (i.e. free). A modern museum with some interesting exhibits, but a focus on interactivity. This place will give you a good grounding in the history of the old town and is probably best done before getting there (which is perfect because it's pretty... More

Located, literally, under the road that leads to the Royal Palace from the City so be careful not to miss it as it is well worth a visit. The museum contains a section of the old city wall and recreates medieval Stockholm with a harbor, boats and a town square complete with pillory.

I visited the Medieval Museum two times. Actually I liked the medieval era and the curator of this museum reflected this era strictly. It was very big and very informative. If you are also interested with the medieval era like me, you can spend four hours in this museum without get bored. Also I think, it is the best museum... More

While somewhat tricky to find using a map (the museum is under a bridge next to the Opera House, this museum is amazing for having absolutely no admission. It was definitely not just a children's exhibition as we two adults went and enjoyed ourselves immensely. I really could not believe it was free. The reconstructions were beautiful. And while it...

Don't forget to visit it. The best medieval museum that I have ever seen !! It's free to entry, on the centre. No excuse not to go if you visit Stockholm. Just a lit bit difficult to find it (not enough signs) but don't miss it.

It was really difficult to view this museum as the noise level was overwhelming! The teachers were standing there talking to each other completely ignoring the children. The kids were touching everything and in general being disrespectful. If you can get over the noise or happen to be there outside school times then I'm sure this place would be quite... More

About half way across the Norrbro bridge (on the little island north of the Royal Palace) descend the steps down and here you’ll find the entrance to the Medieval Museum. It is free which makes a nice change. Inside you discover a re-created street scene from Stockholm along with a number of artefacts which were uncovered during an archeological excavation... More

The museum does not open until noon, but it is free and certainly worth more than that. The centerpiece of the museum is the medieval wall segments that were discovered during a construction project. Surrounding the walls are lots of panels with lots of reading. Light is low so this is not the easiest thing to do. Then there are... More

This museum was really cool, it's free and they give you headphones that'll guide you through the place. There was an old Viking ship there

I spent over an hour in here to kill some time whilst waiting to meet someone from work during a visit to the city & thoroughly enjoyed it. The free entry was an added bonus and despite not being particularly interested in history as such, really enjoyed learning all about the history of the city. The interactive audio parts were...
