This place is full of great finds over the years . Trouble is there is so much it would take you hours to look and read all the information, free entrance which is always a bonus

A free, informative and interesting museum- what more could you ask for? The Swedish History Museum is free for all, and does a great job at placing objects and items for exhibit comfortably within the afforded space, so you're able to move freely between everything. The museum tries to engage with their visitors, by encouraging you to ask questions and see parallels or differences in our current world compared to what it was like before.

I think some displays are still in the process of being given an English description as well, but the majority of the museum has descriptions in two languages. One of the exhibits has a really clever timeline running across the floor as you move through the museum so you know exactly when the objects of display fit into Swedish history and their significance.

Great museum! Loved the rune stones and other artifacts! Really enjoyed going through and learning about the history of Sweden, the Old Norse folk, Scandinavia etc.

We have toured well known museums like Vasa an Nobel, and thoroughly enjoyed them.

The Swedish history Museum, in our opinion, topped them all. We spent about three hours looking at the Viking exhibits, the gold room, and Middle Ages floor.

Fascinating look at how a people, nation, and history evolve.

Don’t miss this museum. It is free, and the cafeteria is a nice spot for a good, inexpensive lunch!

Visited the Swedish history museum since it was free and had additional exhibitions on such as the Viking age. We spent 4-5h in the museum. Best part was the Vikings, the gold room and the Swedish history where you track the timeline from room to room. There was things for little ones as well plus additional middle age , Viking activities in the centre outdoor square. Nice shop with plenty of books and a cafe, restaurant is also available on site.
Highly recommended

Since we were with a group we saw very little of the large museum. Our visit concentrated on Viking gold and burials. The exhibits on the Vikings were well presented and interesting. There was actual Viking gold jewelry and real rune stones. There was some information about where they traveled to as well.

History of Sweden, cultural information, temporary Vikings exhibit, all very interesting and well-laid out. Many state-run museums are free, including this one.
