Free - always a good start. Plenty of effort put into displaying coins in an interesting, yet adult, way. Largest coin in the world.

Plenty of unique and antique collection for coins and notes. A lot of historical moment which could let us knew the improvement of human being. And the most important is FREE admission.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
