“I was surprised how much I liked this museum”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

If you are a fan of military history, you will have to see this museum.

However, the appeal extends beyond this. There were a decent number of exhibits that discussed the impact on civilian life of different wars that Sweden was active in or was able to avoid thru neutrality (e.g., WWII). It's easy to find and worth some time on your trip.

“More than just Military”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

This museum presents a very balanced view of the Swedish military and its history. That was refreshing. It is also a good introduction into the civilian sector that necessarily supported the military forces over the centuries - from the rote and rusthalle system to the military training of its residents during its long period of peace. Staff is very helpful and willing to supplement the displays with more information, if needed.

“Really interesting”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

A great museum. If you don't speak/read Swedish, the audio guides are a must though. Give yourself plenty of time - we spent much longer there than we'd planned.

“A good overview of Swedish war history”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

the Army museum in Stockholm is well worth a visit - modernized several times during the last 10 years in now diplays both memorable items, old guns as well as the Swedish war history. On the court yard in front are also some interesting artillery items and some armoured vehicles plus a tank model "S" without a turrent. This special edition also has the "secret weapon" installed: When i did my military service noone knew what the holders in front were for and just before the tank model was scrapped it was revealed that it was to hold a grid to protect from anti-tank missiles
