This one gives some history and culture from the Middle Ages, life in Stockholm including characters, replicas of life, etc. Worth the time - and it's FREE. Most of it involves reading - no audio guides or multi-media. Still, very educational and well-done.

The medieval museum underneath the parliament buildings is a great demonstration of medieval life in what is now Stockholm. Inside you find a mini medieval city complete with replica style buildings, the foundations of the old city wall, and a great insight into the living conditions in medieval times. Each exhibit tells the story of the person who worked there,... More

What a fantastic museum! And all for free! Bring the kids to enjoy this interactive museum, but there's plenty for adults to see and learn too. Hidden under the Parliament building, the museum boasts a ship, models, objects and mock buildings – a church, shops and houses. There are free tours too, but check the times. Everything is perfectly labelled... More

Go there, absolutely. It's funny, interesting, educating, nice experience. If you buy regularly ticket for 100 SEK, you get special annual card to this museum which is valid to City Museum too. So, you could visit for one price two museums.

The museum is buit in an inventive way and you'll learn a lot about Medieval Stockholm and how the city has evolved since. Great place for the whole family.

Interesting and informative, but it leaves much to be desired. There are large gaps physically in the exhibition and in the information given, perhaps because they don't know much about the times then. Amazing to physically see the city wall from back then in real life though!

This museum is a must when visiting Stockholm. Very interesting telling the story about how life was in the Medieval Stockholm and how the town was build up. I did although miss the part telling about the 'Vitalie brothers'.

We bought the ticket in the Stockholm city museum, the ticket is valid in both that museum and the Medieval museum, and inexpensive (100SEK for adults). So we recommend going to both the museums. Nice houses and interesting information about the middle ages. The lay out is very nice, it feels bigger than it is. There was a boat. (which... More

I am a big fan of museums and when I travel to a new city I spend a lot of time checking out local museums and have seen many different types. I was blown away by the quality of this museum. I found the layout very pleasing and the type of information available was fantastic. In a city like Stockholm... More
