There are so many things to see and do in Stockholm as a tourist, but if you've been to the Vasa Museum and the other main sites, then I'd highly recommend a trip here. It's not the largest museum, but it will take about two hours to go through it and read or listen via headphones to most of the explanations on display. The building is three floors, and you start on the top floor, with the displays in chronological order from the early Vikings to present day. The third floor, which covered up until 1900, was far more interesting and revealing to me than the second floor, which covered the last 100 hundred years, and the first floor had some exhibits regarding Sweden's armed forces' involvement in overseas situations like the Congo and Afghanistan in the last 20 years. What was cool about the museum was that there were very life-like full size latex figures of soldiers and others in re-created war scenes across the centuries. The museum also had quite a collection of weapons, uniforms and other artifacts dating back hundreds of years, and also a pretty bizarre art exhibit of rifles to signify the weapons' importance to the soldiers using them in warfare.
