There's a lot of great information displayed in very appealing and interactive ways. The audio guide is probably the best way to experience it all, but the displays are done so well and there are written signs at each display so that it can be enjoyed either with or without the audio guides. Our whole family enjoyed it, ages 11... More

Enjoyable museum, with remains of an ancient wall and recreated scenes from medieval times, as well as a variety of objects found in this location. Free, surprisingly. Not large, but covers a good variety of dimensions of people and their lives then. Difficult to locate: under a bridge, and maps don't show it clearly. Good museum shop. Very pleasant cafe... More

This museum was very warm, but it was full of information. The exhibits are very well done. There are models, signs, maps, and much more. This museum taught me a great deal.Well worth the trip.

This museum, in my opinion is the best way to learn about history of Stockholm from the very beginning. I got some basic history lesson from a walking tour and this museum explains further and I could easily spend a full day in this museum! It was so interesting! The displays, statues and exhibits had sound effects (there were holograms... More

Not many people visit it because it's tucked away from the streets. It's wonderful museum of how life was during the medieval period, good artifacts, and period farming and fishing reconstructions. Kids will like this place.

This new museum presents the history of medieval Stockholm very well. The audioguide has lots of pertinent information, and the exhibits give one a good sense of what life was like back then. Highly recommended.

Free to enter, the Medieval Museum, is located under the island that Parliament is situated on. It is built overtop of an archaeological excavation site and is designed to resemble parts of an old Medieval town. If you are looking for a museum dedicated to Medieval warfare and knights, this really isn't it. Instead, expect to learn about Stockholm's tradesmen,... More

Ok place -- if you are passing by and want to stop and spend a half an hour or so. Not especially a "destination" visit but again its free - no harm no foul. That said you can skip this one too if you are pressed for time.

If Carlsberg did medieval museums, they would probably model theirs on this Stockholm gem. The entrance makes a statement of how wonderful this museum is. You walk downwards through a tunnel with water reflected on the ceiling as if you were entering via an ancient sewer. A model of Stockholm from the 13th century greets you, surrounded by exhibits discovered... More
