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

the museum is good, but for SEK 100 you can have a much better attraction in Stockholm (Vasa, for exemple, is 120). It is dedicated to enlighten the medieval life in the city. The best information is in the timeline charts that tell us a bit about the swedish society evolution.

The museum is very close to Royal palace,the enterance is not expensive and a lot of knowledge and demos about medievel Stockholm. Children likes these kind of museums than others.You can take photo without flash. 2 hours is enough for this museum opens at 11.00 closed at mondays. Keep the tickets you can use them with city museum also.
