Visited after watching the "changing of the guard" so the rooms were crowded. The items were well displayed. As I remember there was little English in display notes, but on the way out purchased book and that has provided the required detail. Fascinating funeral crown of Louisa Ulrika.

Admission to this royal palace museum is included in the ticket price to the Royal apartments. Because it is a vault like room, the space is small and gets crowded quickly, particularly when a palace tour guide is longwinded about pointing out details of the items in the display cases and telling stories about the royals who used them.

Like most museums in Stockholm, it seems, this one is overpriced for the 10-15 minutes it took to get through it. Fortunately it was included in the Stockholm Card so that made it worth the look. If you don't have one of these cards, don't bother. There is very limited information, the jewels are not very spectacular (compared with crown... More

We had the Stockholm card so we had a look here, honestly if you don't have the card it's a complete rip off; if you do have the card I suppose it's worth whiling away five minutes here. If you are ever in London go and see the Crown Jewels at the Tower Of London; now they are worth paying... More

This treasury is quite small (two rooms) compared to other national treasury museums in Europe. However, it was worth visiting with the Stockholm card. No audio guides are available - limited information on the displays. We only spent max. 20mins in this museum.

1. Yes, there are only two small rooms. However, given that the entry fee is SEK150, can't they do up more narration for the displays? Most of them simply state whose crown, whose sceptre, etc. They could have be more information with e.g. whether it is gold, platinum, silver, what precious stones are there etc. 2. There are several similar... More

We had a combination ticket, so we toured the Royal Treasury. There are a lot of beautiful crowns and jewels. There are really only about 2 rooms, so it doesn't take that long. It is interesting to see the style of the jewels and the crowns.

Unless you are visiting the treasury out of a combination ticket, don't pay for this. It's just 2 tiny rooms of a few objects. A better place is the royal armoury where the objects from scale and grandeur will blow you away much more than the few stuff here.

The treasury is located downstairs in the Royal Palace of Stockholm. Here you can see all sorts of crowns and royal regalia from the early 16th century onwards. Sweden was an independent kingdom from 1520 before that for a long time in union with Denmark and Norway.
