“Not a typical history museum”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

This is a life style museum and could be boring if you are not into dresses, toys, house ornaments etc...

Building itself is very nice and its architecture interesting.

“Excellent history lesson on Sweden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

We went sure what exactly to expect in this museum but it turned into a very interesting learning experience. The exhibits gave insight looks into Sweden's past.
Worth a visit even if it's just to get out of the cold rain.

“worth visiting for those who stays in the city for more that 3-4 days”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

I won't say it is my favourite museum in Stockholm. but it gives you a good view to the Swedish culture in terms of daily life, traditions etc. also I was really amazed by the exhibition about Sami.
I definitely recommend this museum in case you stay in Stockholm more than 3-4 days. Otherwise it won't be on my priority list of city's attractions. Just to review the beautiful building will be enough:-)

“Life as it was...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Nordic Museum is a misnomen. This museum showcases Swedish social history at it's best! The exhibitions gave a fantastic insight into life in Sweden over the past centuries. I particularly appreciated the table settings through the centuries. The audio tour was excellent however I could not understand why the written information was not consistently in both Swedish and English. I would absolutely recommend a vist here for people of all ages. There were a lot of families visiting on New Year's Day. The children were fascinated by the 25 minute film of people dressing in the clothes of earlier ages. They were right; it was fascinating.

My only disappointment was the cafe which was understaffed.The cafe was not busy but the team was struggling to put out food and drink orders and this caused some tensions between staff and staff and customeers and staff which made me feel uncomfortable.

“Great museum with wonderful stories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

Buy yourself one of the audio tours - an amazing way to learn the detail about every display you pass. Wonderful way to spend many hours learning about Nordic (particularly Swedish) history and culture.
