“Best museum ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Even to those who are not museum geeks, this one is worth a visit. The historical periods come alive with videos and explanations, and they try to tie everything in with contemporary issues. It's the best museum I've been in!

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.

“Short visit if you take young children, but worth the time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

If you're taking young children with you (< 6 yo), don't expect to spend more than 1-2 hours. On the other hand, there are so many interesting things to see that your time will be well used.

“Educational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Really great to see more of what the Vikings were all about. It wasn't just rape & pillage! I didn't realize they were such farmers and merchants. There is a lot more to learn about than just the Vikings, much more history
