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.

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
