The museum, opened in 1879, is located on the site of a former Artillerigarden, a major depot for over three centuries. The displays inside have a remarkable distinct approach to exhibiting military heritage when compared to most other similar museums. While there is quite an exhaustive exploration of the military history (antique and modern weapons, vehicles, Sweden’s current neutrality stance, the Cold War years, general military history over 400 years), the museum pays tribute to the life of the common soldier and his family too, and the life of the population during times of war and peace. There is also a section dedicated to the Swede Raoul Wallenberg, who saves the lives of thousands of Jews during the Holocaust. Don’t miss the Trophy Chamber.

  • One of the most enjoyable museums I went to in Stockholm. It was larger than anticipated and had a guided tour which you could download in your phone for free in English. The exhibits were also dual language with very good English descriptions. Also free entry! Recommended :)

  • Museum is free, and its a great way to spend an hour or two. The layout is well done and there are a lot of exhibits. Great for kids as well as adults.

  • I am by no means a big fan of museum's. They're often quite boring and poorly laid out however I found this to be well thought out and designed through the ages of war. It was fantastic.

  • We were lucky rough to visit on parade day..really enjoyed the pomp and.ceremony. The museum was interesting l it room about an hour to tour. The military history was of interesting. Displays have good explanations. Entry was free.

  • Well organized museum. Start from the 3rd floor and work your way to street level, so you can follow the dates and periods in order. It is free and staff is quite nice and friendly.
