The Original Stockholm Ghost Walk and Historical Tour

457 reviews
If you think you've seen it all and heard it all in Stockholm, think again. This guided walking tour sheds new light (and a little darkness) on Stockholm's oldest neighborhood. As you follow the lantern light of your guide through the cobblestoned streets and alleyways, hear tales of ghosts, murder, and horror while getting a deeper insight into the history of Sweden's capital.

This one obviously covers the history of Sweden from different perspectives - religious artifacts and paintings, information about the history of life in Scandinavia and Sweden, Vikings and runes, wars, historical artifacts, and the Gold room (where they show ancient jewelry). There is a lot of info in English, and while there's abundance of info, the display itself feel somewhat lackluster. The thing I liked the most was just outside the museum - activities to demonstrate viking life - like using a bow and arrow, baking, etc. If you are interested in the history of the Swedish people you must visit the museum, but expect nothing fancy.

We visited the Viking Museum just by chance as I was worried that it may not be suitable for teenagers . My 16yr old loved it as did my 10 yr old . Alex the guide was fantastic. He definitely made it fun and real . He engaged all of the crowd and was very informative. alex even had a sword fight with my kids which was fun to watch . Thankyou Alex and the other staff for making our experience so good .Make sure you visit you won’t be disappointed .

Amazing museum!! Free entry and the exhibits inside are interesting and some are interactive. The Vikings section was closed and will only be opened in spring 2020. One can easily spend two - three hours inside. Good for family and kids.
