Small but interesting museum in English

Small but informative museum. It's free so you can't really complain. Easily covered in 1 hour or less. Also there's English descriptions for everything.

located under one of the bridges, this museum is hidden away and quite cool. All under ground there is a cool atmosphere here and with free entry it is worth going if you're at a loss what to do or have an hour or two to kill. Interesting reading about medieval life of Stockholm and bits to interest kids as... More

The Medieval Museum in Stockholm is a free museum and worth at least an hour. It is easy to find as it is very close to the Royal Palace. The museum contains many old artifacts from Stockholm's history including some very large exhibits of parts of old ships and walls. It is well laid out and the exhibits are well... More

Highlights for me include: - History of the boundaries and architecture of the city itself - Information about the social structure of medieval Stockholm - Ancient boat and cannon artifacts It was a great place to spend 2 hours, and there were...

We found out about this museum online and I think it would be easy to miss being located below the Parliament and Public Safety Buildings, right on the waterfront. It has some great displays about Old Stockholm and lots of information about its history. The original portion of the old city walls is neat and I thought the re-created area... More

Underneath The Western Bridge, you will find this interesting museum. When the Swedish Parliament building got a facelift in the late '70s, they found a whole host of archaeological finds. We read that the museum was constructed around part of Stockholm's city wall, dating from the early 16th century, as well as a medieval graveyard and a war ship. I... More

Not many things are free anymore, but this wonderful museum was! It's easy to miss on the lower area of Helgeandsholm Island. Go down the stone stairs and find the entrance. It's a great large museum of Medieval history of the country.
