We visited the treasury. Luckily we had the Stockholm card so entry was free which was good, because we literately only spend about 10mins in the vault. There's some nice piece of treasury there, but don't expect to see vast amounts of it. It's literally 2 small rooms, and gets easily crowded. Worth a visit if you have the Stockholm... More

If you have a Stockholm Card, don't miss it. It is very small, just a few things, but here are priceless jewels from Sweden history. Sweden had to be enormously rich country in the past.

There are 3 small rooms with treasure in Royal Palace. Not bad, but after Armoury Chamber in Moscow it is not very impressive. There are few exhibits in tresury. It is worth seeing with Stockholm card but not for additional pay.

This is something you just have to see if you are in Stockholm and is interested in Swedish history. It has everything from a bygone era and reflects our past in a good way and there are a lot of interesting things to look at and read about.

Included in the price for the Royal Palace - which is worth the ticket price. Like others have said, make sure you get a Stockholm card before venturing here to make it worth your while. No photos are allowed and the museum isn't very memorable. The Royal Armoury on the other hand has a lot more glitter and gold.

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.
