History of Stockholm in the middle ages: well done, if it's your cup of tea. Excellently designed exhibits give kids chances to explore. Exhibits well signed in English, but audio tour was interesting too but you need to be pretty interested to pay the 20 krona.

This was not on our itinerary but we popped in to get out of the freezing cold. This is a beautifully designed and instructive museum. You are not overwhelmed with too many exhibits (unlike say The Louvre). Well worth a visit. Good for children. And it's free.

It is a nice free museum, one hour is enough and we rented the audio tour for 20 kr wich made it far more interesting i think. Everything is well presented. Lockers available. Recommendend.

Open also on Sundays, which was really handy for us! Free admission, lots to see. You could also wonder around and sort of walk into the buildings, which made it interesting even for adults! Really enjoyed.

Now free admission (January 2016) It not only tells the story of medieval Stockholm but also looks into archaeology. It gives the visitor insight to life at the time, from diseases to taverns, the church and building technics of the time. Something for everyone. Like all major Swedish museums it is practically bilingual (English).

A great museum right in front of the Old town. It is even better because it's free! Very well presented and interesting.

nice way to spend a couple hours on a dreary day. Amusing depiction of medieval life with recreations of buildings inside.

Although well laid out and with extensive signage this museum wasn't overly interesting to me as I'm widely read on history. Still it's conveniently located and it's FREE, which in Sweden sets it apart.
