This museum was very well laid out with it starting right from when King's lead the army to modern times. The English guide was very informative and nice. She did a great job at explaining the history of the Swedish army. The museum hands out headsets with different languages, mine did not work but most of the pictures etc were in English. The very old building is worth snapping some pictures of the outside.

Enjoyable displays. Information is nicely explained and you don't need to know about Swedish history in advance to follow it. Wheelchair access at the entrance is a bit cobbled but they are planning to improve it. Inside the disabled access and toilets are good.

We spent a couple of hours at the Army museum in June 2014.

The museum focuses on the peak of the Swedish empire, with a floor almost entirely dedicated to the wars of the 17th and 18th century. This was the Golden age of Sweden, and with it came many wars.

Exhibits were overall well thought through. Some gems can be found in the trophies from those wars, such as flags and weapons. Signs were both in swedish and English.

The next floor was under renovation, and was overall less interesting, with a few exceptions, such as a focus on Raoul Wallenberg.

Overall, a pleasant visit, and a museum delivering warnings against warmongoers. Given it is the army museum, it was unexpected and hence made the messages even stronger.

Recommended if you have an interest in history.

O.k. I went there to please my partner who is Swedish and has 'a thing' about the Swedish army and all those weapons. Big surprise. Our visit lasted almost three hours and I loved every minute of it. Those early weapons, then the daily lives of soldiers through the centuries so very vividly reconstituted, the collection of army uniforms, all those firearms and rifles that were sometimes real work of art so richly decorated they were. And those more modern ones. I learned a lot, in fact was fascinated. They have quite a big exhibition on the more practical aspects of keeping and army like how they were housed and fed through the ages. I didn't know that until the beginning of the 19th century, wives of soldiers often went to war along with the children to take care of them. And YES there is quite a lot of info in English. Could do with some more though.
I recommend it definitely.
