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.

Excellent! Our entire family had a great time visiting. One could spend hours going through and studying everything or you go thru and see all the highlights in an hour or too. Def a good place to go when it's cold out!
The best museum in Stockholm! Amazing exhibitions about Vikings, Golden room and history of medieval life of Sweden will excite you. You won’t notice three hours while walking around exhibits. Must see in Stockholm!
Free-entrance museum. Highly recommended for anyone interested in Sweden's background. Young lady at the museum shop desk was so friendly. There are free spacey lockers to leave your stuff during the visit. The service desk lady said I could do the whole museum in 1,5 - 2 hours. I only had 1,5 hours and chose to go straight to the Viking part. This is just a fraction of the whole museum but took me already 1,5 hours to see and read everything! It's a blessing this Museum is free for visitors, this way you can visit it several times and take enough time to see everything on a slower pace.
A great place to spend some time learning about Swedish history. Some of the facts are a bit dry, but there is something for everyone. And it is free!
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.
