O.k. I went there to please my partner who is Swedish and has 'a thing' about the Swedish army and all those weapons. Big surprise. Our visit lasted almost three hours and I loved every minute of it. Those early weapons, then the daily lives of soldiers through the centuries so very vividly reconstituted, the collection of army uniforms, all... More

This museum was renovated some years ago and the objects are shown in interesting ways. There are interresting presentations of the development of different weapons and the visitors are guided through the Swedish history in a pedagogic way. What I definitely cannot understand is why explanatory texts in English are missing basically all through the modern history in the last... More

This museum shows Swedish military history. My children are like it. But Russian museum of Artillery in Saint-Petersburg has both Russian and English descriptions, and this one in Swedish only, but audio guide in different languages corrects situation.

Good museum if you´re interested in that kind of stuff, I missed that the zone dedicated to the "dark history", torturing devices, etc, ...of sweden were bigger. Seems that there is also a tour visit that really improves the experience but we went there on one free day (not sure if every thursday or just that day, we found it... More

This museum is well worth going to and entertained adults and kids (males and females of all ages) alike. The fee is low and includes an audio guide. The lockers are free (need 10kr coin to activate which is returned) and the small gift shop was good plus there is a restaurant with reasonable food. The exhibit on the Swedish... More

Even I am not big fan of army and history of wars, this musrum is well done. There is a lot of figurins, you can see "real scenes" from soldiers life. Interesting.

The first few exhibits on the beginning of war and it's medieval phase are very vivid life-sized tableau which the visitor can walk through. I was impressed. Some of the later exhibits don't require much time, and this museum and the Music and Theater Museum across the street can be seen with one entry fee in an hour or so.... More

My gf and I were really impressed by the effort put in for all the displays and 'storylines' of each period. It is not your typical army museum where there are just decriptions and displays of weapons and uniforms, but a vividly realistic view plus a story of the military of the past to present. It is defintely worth a... More

Museums too often are simply a collection of "stuff" with little or no effort made at conveying context or insight. This museum not only makes the attempt but excels in the effort. Among the themes: 1. Why do humans make war and is it inevitable. 2. Large armies consume amazing quantities of food and historically had to remain on the... More
