We only had time to see the changing of the guard ceremony and we were glad we did...i believe Sweden still has military conscription (good idea!) and the young people we talked to were all conscripts....most defiantly worth a visit.

I only came for the "Changing of the Guard", which is only Sundays and Wednesdays in October though Spring. Start time says 11:45am, but that is just when the new Guards leave the army barracks to head towards the Royal Palace. The actual "Changing of the Guard" doesn't begin until 12:15pm, but you'll still want to get there earlier for the best spots, or else get stuck standing behind a 6 foot 2 inch tall tourist, such as myself.

Fun Fact: Sweden has not been in an actual war since 1814, but they still keep this military tradition on. What makes this better than other nations' "Changing of the Guard" process is the marvelous marching band. It becomes a mini concert, including a marching band rendition of "Swedish Mafia" which is a delight and whimsical.

Since you'll likely be passing through Gamla Stam at some point during your Stockholm holiday, you might as well catch this. Plus its free!

This palace has three distinct sections to visit plus the Riddarholmen Church. Take in all four to get a wonderful view of Stockholms history.

Changing of the guard, rooms very interesting. What I liked most was the carriage display in the basement. Enter from the back. Next to the palace was a very interesting free archaeology museum. Easy walking distance.

A good place to see Sweden’s royal history and how they lived in past years. One can see furniture, clothes and rooms where royal families lived earlier. Three crowns is very nice to see as well.

Great to visit the Royal Palace while exploring Stockholm to soak up Swedish history and culture.

See the main Royal Apartments, the Treasury and the Kronor Museum together.

The Treasury held impressive crowns, jewels, swords and other regalia.

Great to see this part of Swedish history so close up.

This is a functioning Royal Palace which serves as the location for the head of state. Be sure to catch the Changing of the Guard, the music will surprise you.

We visited with our 2 year old during a very rainy day last week. It’s good value and has some really interesting things to look at. We spent most time in the state apartments. Lots of space to move around when it is busy too.

The underground museum looked great for older kids with trails and quests. Only complaint is you can’t take buggies in - would be a good idea for them to invest in some pushchairs to borrow like at the airport to make more accessible to parents with younger kids.

The Royal Palace is an amazing building inside. Lots of furniture, paintings etc to see. You can also watch the changing of the guard outside. Not cheap to go in 180 kroner each. Located at Slottsbacken in Gamla Stan, on the waterfront.

I found the Royal Apartments very dark inside not the best of light for taking photos without a flash, I suppose they must keep the rooms dark so not to damage the furnishings with daylight, this did actually spoil the whole experience, however on a lighter note The Chandeliers were absolutely stunning, .Also look out for the Huge Big Throne, And the Queens Coronation Robe, loads of interesting bits, but just a bit on the dark side to take any worth while photos sadly.
