A nice expose over contemporary and ancient Swedish military history. More than you think. Good for families and maybe best for traditional father and son visit.

Really interesting, seeing as Sweden hasn't been in a conflict for 200 years. More on Wallenberg would be good. Clearer chronology of Swedish military history would have been better (though I suspect it was there in Swedish displays). Great use of IT, although the audio guide often focused on weird wax displays rather than the military history.

This is a very interesting museum with more to in than the chronological military history of Sweden represented by usual displays of various military memorabilia. They of course have this and a good collection of it as well but I found the special display on the logistics of feeding an army very interesting. An army moves on its stomach and this was a great display of how that has been done for the past few hundred years.

My only complaint and that is because I am not Swedish is the lack of English signage. Considering everyone in Sweden speaks English and that English is so easy to find every where in Sweden it was a bit of a surprise that the signboards were single language.

Plenty to see over 4(?) floors. Well presented both displays and memrobelia. They have a free day so to preseve your budget it is worth finding out when there is no admitance charge.

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.
