Historiska Museet - Review
Laid out cleverly over three floors, the Swedish Historical museum will take you through the various periods of Swedish history in sequence: Pre-history, Viking, Medival and Baroque. Do not make the mistake of judging this book by it’s cover. The museum might be plain to look at from the outside, but it’s gloriously detailed on the indside. Over 4000 Viking artefacts are displayed here. Another favorite is the resplendent Gold Room, filled with 50 kg of gold and 200 kg of silver in the form of various ornaments and cutlery. The English translations here are very well done. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Stockholm Itinerary 2 Days.

Historiska Museet, Stockholm Reviews
A free, informative and interesting museum- what more could you ask for? The Swedish History Museum is free for all, and does a great job at placing objects and items for exhibit comfortably within the afforded space, so you're able to move freely between everything. The museum tries to engage with their visitors, by encouraging you to ask questions and see parallels or differences in our current world compared to what it was like before. I think some displays are still in the process of being given an English description as well, but the majority of the museum has descriptions in two languages. One of the exhibits has a really clever timeline running across the floor as you move through the museum so you know exactly when the objects of display fit into Swedish history and their significance.
1. easy access by public transport. bus stop is located just in front of the entrance. 2. each sections are nicely decorated with its own theme. some are barely lit & display skeletal remains (my 5 y.o. daughter was scared). 3. plenty of artefact with easy to read information. 4. its free! definitely one of the best museums in Europe.
We loved our visit here. There is so much to see, we wish we would have known about it all so we could have scheduled more time during our visit. The biggest disappointment we had was the live, outdoor interactions. Unfortunately, because we visited during the warmest months in a hotter than average year, some things were closed. We would have loved to try some iron working. Now that I know what's involved, I may end up planning two days here during my next visit to Stockholm. It is high on our list of recommendations!
An amazing museum with lots of high quality exhibitions together with a free entrance fee! Another great thing about this museum is the free online database which can e really useful. Just a great place to visit and I would highly recommend it
Kids had s great time in the play area. Made bread from sough dough. Tried beating hot metal to make Viking tools. The inside is very interactive. Best museum been to in the world. Lots of the 5 senses used.
