It's a good experience to visit a small museum, esp people like the Egyptian history as there's enough to see and you can take your time to see all the details of the exhibits as winter is not a busy season. It would also be an incredible experience to have a nice lunch or coffee break there as you can... More

It's not very big but it's free of charge and it's very nice and clean and it has a little bit of everything, mostly from Cyprus and Egypt. It's well worth a visit and don't forget to visit their Cafe which is very nice and worth a visit for sure.

We stumbled across this museum on our way to somewhere else and enjoyed an hour or so looking at the Egyptian treasures. It was a good warm up to the Tutenkhamun exhibition which is on until April 2017. Nice gift shop too.

We went there for the Egyptian part. It feels like ages I have been to Egyptian museum in Cairo so this is the closest replacement and for a small museum they have nice collection of Egyptian antiquities. I'm sure the other collections are well worth seeing also, just did not have the time now. Great plus was that there was... More

Great restaurant upstairs - that is #1. It's free and lots of well presented exhibits. Worth an hour or two if time permits. English and Swedish on all exhibitions. Perfect translation too!

It was amazing to learn about Swedish expeditions to the Mediterranean and Near Eastern. The collection has amazing assets and it is very well organized. It also offers some multimedia and kid-friendly exhibitions.

The best part of this compact museum was, in my view, the section about Ancient Egypt, with its mummies and explanations about life in times past. For the rest, there is a lot of material from Cyprus, although - perhaps because of lack of space - many exhibits were crammed into glass cases with little explanation as to what one... More

it is a traditional museum with collections and exhibitions and not a fancy playground (as so many other museums in Stockholm) - but not boring at all, since the collections are displayed with lots of interesting and educational information; it's suited for adults and children; and if you visit the coffee shop, you can have coffee & cake among beautiful...

Some fantastic finds at this museum, including the largest collection of Cypriot antiquities outside Cyprus. Also a very significant Egyptian collection. Very enjoyable!
