Rich collection of weapons from 17-th century onwards. You can hold some items in your arms making it more interactive. What you read inside makes you think and reflect and this is what makes this place different to other military museums i've seen

Recommended as still central to the city and not busy during weekdays. Free to enter and quite interactive for all ages. Displays Swedish military history (its army) from late 1500's to modern day. A good 1-1.5hr visit.
