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.

Army Museum, Stockholm Reviews - Write a Review
A must go for anyone interested in army history, uniforms, war and weapons. Really cool setup and you can try on uniforms of different armies from different eras and also try out (lift) guns. There's also projectile penetration and entry/exit wound displays which are quite interesting. On top of all this, the museum is free!
Pretty cool place for a military nut. Has real life looking displays and is pretty informative too. Could do a bit with more interactivity though.
When I entered and saw exhibition on the ground floor I was disappointed but next floors changed my mind. Great museum and it's totally free. If it will be nonfree I wouldn't mind to pay for the ticket.
Very well designed museum give Sweden's entire military history (glosses over Sweden's economic ties to Germany during WW2)
Great museum. Free. Has lockers. Changing of the guard troops starts here and has a performance and march to the palace.
