This museum is well laid out and is very interesting if you like to learn how people lived in Medieval times. My teenagers liked it too, especially the law and order section.

The Medieval Museum in Stockholm is located in the centre of Stockholm, right by the Swedish Parliament and close to the Royal Castle. The escavation is underground and will give you a glimpse of what life was life in the medieval times. The museum is not huge, but friendly and easy for children to take in. It gives a nice... More

The location is a little hidden, but worth the search. It is under ground level and the entrance is in a small park on an island below street level...but you can find it with a little effort. The museum is a short look into medieval times...well laid out and mostly in English (some of the videos were not and the... More

The Medieval Museum is a great "find": built around the relatively newly discovered Medieval city wall. Very cool story! The museum layout creatively walks you through a variety of aspects of Medieval life: building styles, aspects of everyday life, the role of the church, children's games, clothes, the rules: "many pigs but only one cow ", types of punishment (ewwwwwwwwww),...

This museum deals with what could be a slightly dull subject in a very modern and friendly way. A small entrance hall opens up in to an expansive main room, with the remains of Stockholm's original city wall as its impressive centerpiece. Other features include full size replicas of different buildings throughout the city's medieval history and, on select days,... More

It is a very well set museum, with history about Stockholm and Sweden, many years ago, that life was not easy, and surviving need a lot of effort.After the visit on this museum, even if you knew nothing about how people lived in the middle ages, you will have then an idea. And especially in Scandinavia, that the environment was... More

We found this museum much more interesting and well done than the various museums associated with the Royal Palace (nearby). This museum is located under the bridge that leads from Norrmalm (the central part of Stockholm) to Gamla Stan, just opposite the Parliament buildings. There is a lovely little quiet park at the entrance to the museum, with a very... More

This was a great place to take the kids. My 11-year old enjoyed the 25-minute English speaking tour. My 8-year old roamed around on her own, which was fine because the museum is small and is located within one space so I could find my kid easily at any time. There are spaces to climb and explore. We visited the... More

This museum offers an experience outside the regular. Plus, when you buy the entrance (100:-) it allows you free entrance for a year to both this museum and Stockholm's Stadsmuseum (the museum of Stockholm city). We also bought the audio guide. This is not necessary but saves you from reading all the signs. I would prefer not telling much about... More

We lucked out and got to take the tour in English. I loved seeing the old wall and learning about medieval Stockholm. It is a small museum and it can be tricky to find. It is under a bridge leading to the medieval part of Stockholm. Still, it had a lot of interesting things in it and the tour was... More
