The Army Museum is free to the public and offers many looks at old time weapons and uniforms. Those who love history and military history will want to stop and spend a couple hours looking over all of the toys.

This museum has an interest mostly on the history of Sweden, and nordic countries. Few arms but more interesting parts of the rich past of this area

The museum made history come alive in a very interesting way. We also found the current exhibition both interesting and really up-to-date.

Good museum, not only shows the weapons history it also give you full army history in chronological way. Suitable for anyone even if you aren't interested in army or weapons.

This is a mens museum, after all more men than women have been serving in the army. Located in the central parts of Stockholm close to the Underground Station Östermalm.

Thank Anna S
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
