With its high-end shopping facilities and Michelin-starred restaurants, Östermalm is definitely the poshest part of central Stockholm. Here you will find Stockholm’s most majestic residential buildings, a beautiful market hall from 1888 displaying gourmet foods from around the world and the Swedish Royal Dramatic Theatre with its awe-inspiring architecture. At night, legendary nightclubs make the perfect location to observe the natives (and those aspiring to become natives of this exclusive neighborhood) in their natural habitat and to enjoy the latest produce of the Swedish house music scene.

Much like other European military museums, this one tells the story of Sweden's military history, and contains many cannons (positioned outside), armored vehicles, depictions of war and it's influence on the day-to-day of a soldier, uniforms from various eras and of course - weapons.
Free admission.

Never back again!
Typical Swedish biased historical approach, no information, just slogans.
Please make sure your kids are aware of real history in other way.

Good sized museum in a central location, it’s free of charge so it’s certainly worth the visit. The museum covers many conflicts throughout history, naturally focusing more on the Swedish perspective when it comes to world wars. There’s a lot of information and almost all of it is also provided in English. There are also some interactive displays, which brings an extra layer of interest to the place. Overall a very good museum!

I didn’t plan to visit this museum, but i had another couple of spare hours and decided to pop up. It was a surprise for me when the security guard told me that the museum is free of charge for everybody. The exposition is huge, 3 floors, a lot of interesting artifacts, articles, etc. very interesting and well done, well combined! Worth visiting!

Sweden may be officially neutral, but boy do they have a history of warfare and weapons development! This museum brings the past to life, with dioramas, exhibits and info boards that speak to the the reasons for Sweden's wars and highlights the misery of conflicts medieval to the present. We were most impressed withy the sensitive manner the various eons were presented. For a "wow moment" check out the many captured battle flags and unit standards...many one-of-a-kind and made of impossibly beautiful silk. Great gift shop, too! This is a fantastic museum that is of tangible and enduring value to all ages.

After reading lots of reviews I knew this museum would be a hit with my boys (ages 9 and 13). They absolutely loved it! The displays are good with info in Swedish and English and for history fans (as my eldest), it was awesome. We could’ve spent all afternoon there. Highly recommended!

I was headed to another site when I came across this wonderful museum. Great collection and a very interactive guided tour that can be downloaded to your phone. The section reserved for the two world wars are impressive.

We thought we would take it easy on our last day and check out a museum close by. This was just enough to enjoy. It is free to enter. There are free lockers to put your belongings in and it has a wonderful restaurant on the ground floor. We love history and this is a basically small museum, but full of interesting items. Children seemed to enjoy it as well as adults.
