Overview

The Royal Armoury (Livrustkammaren) is a popular family museum located in the cellars of the Royal Palace in Stockholm. The Royal Armoury shows the history of Sweden’s kings and queens from the 15th century until to day.For almost five hundred years items once in the possession of Swedish monarchs and their families have been kept in the Royal Armoury. From generation to generation, they have built up an ever-expanding collection of memories from the country's different dynasties, evoking well-known events in Swedish history.See, for example, the costume worn by Gustav III at that fateful masked ball in 1792, Charles XII's muddy uniform from Fredriksten in 1718, and the blood-stained shirts and elk-hide buff coat worn by Gustav II Adolf at the Battle of Lützen in 1632.

First thing, the entry is free, so there is no reason you shouldnt stop by for a 10-15 mins tour. The weapons on display are really impressive, and the armors as well, but the strongest pieces of the collection are the royal carts, unusual and...More

A very good place to visit. You learn a lot about the Swedish royals and the things on display are truly remarkable. The audio guide is also very good for those that do not understand English. They could easily charge an entrance fee for what...More

After seeing the English and Scottish crown jewels, I expected something similar. Maybe I missed something? I remember a few crowns, a few swords, some old uniforms. Big deal. It wasn't worth the trip. Luckily my Stockholm Card included it as part of the price.

Nice short summary of Sweden's history. Free entry and free restrooms. Nice and cool place on a hot day. Easy to see in a short time.

This really is fantastic, and also free to enter (the rest of the palace has an entrance charge). However, be aware of that part of the museum is under renovation.

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)
