“Hard to Find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We used our best skills to find this fabulous site...that is in essence BENEATH the Parliament and accross the street from the King's Palace. It was a delight.

Well organized in multiple languages, it communicated a great deal about the quality of life in the Medieval Times...without resorting to unfactual...distorted images. The picture painted is one of a life not so distant from what we now experience... Very well done.

“Free and well done”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

With most museums costing 100 SEK or more, this free museum is a refreshing change. One does get a good picture of life in Stockholm during Medieval times.

“An excellent museum that brings medmedieval Stockholm to life”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

If, like me, you're interested in history, than I recommend this museum. It is fairly small, but is a very interesting way to spend one hour. The displays are all good, and best of all - its not just about objects, you gain a really good idea of what life was like in Stockholm in medieval times. I didn't hire an audio guide and there was plently of information in English to not need one. Also included in the ticket (100 KR) is entry to the Stickholm city museum.

“hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

This museum is not large & could be easily be overlooked as it is situated under a bridge, but is well worth a visit for anyone interested to learn about Stockholm's mediaeval past. There are plenty of engaging displays & children would find it entertaining also. It can easily be combined with a visit to the nearby Royal Palace & personally I enjoyed it more!

“Interesting museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The museum contains a portion of the wall from the 15th century as well as artifacts and a cemetery. We had a great tour with Viktor. The nature of the museum is that is underground; that's where they found the wall, the cemetery, and artifacts when digging a parking garage. It's a bit dreary, but, if you are into medieval history, it's a great stop.
