Go and see this if only for the prehistoric, Viking and gold sections - that was all we did in 2 hours - missed on the later floor. The museum is very well presented, has some wonderful objects and poses some questions as well as simply showing stuff off. Lots of English information about, great cafe space. Good value, don't miss it.

This is was by far one of the best museums in Stockholm. Certainly underrated. If you are interested in history of Sweden and want to see an exhibition about Vikings, then you cant miss this museum. It offers guided tours, audio-guide and is not that expensive.

If you're interested in viking history, do not miss this!! The artifacts and rune stones were amazing. One of the top two museums in Stockholm, beside the Vasa.

The Historiska Museet was one of the best local history museums we've ever run into.

The museum is beautifully organized and many of the items on display are fascinating.
You walk through the history of Stockholm, starting with the Viking days and move on through the Middle Ages, etc. The exhibits are clear and contain enough specifics to entertain and inform people of all ages.

This museum also has the best cafeteria of any that we visited in Stockholm. The food was simply wonderful and we ate in a tiny garden outside the restaurant.
