The Medieval Museum is reached at the foot of a flight of steps near the parliament building. Passing through a small shop you descend a short corridor into a large area excavated from underneath the Helgeandsholmen island. It includes a 55m long stretch of the original city wall, but is largely given over to a number of reconstructions of how... More

We stumbled across this one by total chance. It started to rain and we saw a sign for a museum. It was free to enter, donations accepted I believe, and is quite a small venue but really gave a good picture of how the area was populated and founded. It is not particularly exciting, i.e. may not keep kids occupied... More

This Museum is located under the Norrbro (Northern) bridge, nearby the Royal Palace. Watch out for the sign "Medeltidsmuseum". The old centre of Stockholm used to be here. Its very easy to imagine yourself right in the midst of the Middle Ages as the Museum is designed so that visitors walk through the Medieval town, enter some of the houses... More

This museum gives a look into the medieval life in Stockholm. Built around the ancient stone wall discovered when they were digging for a new parking garage, the museum has many artifacts from the earliest eras of Stockholm, and also some recreated skeletal remains, to give an idea of what some of the residents may have looked like.

While crossing the bridge from Royal Palace look for banners as you go down steps and it is tucked under the bridge sort of on an inlet. Very nice it is real depiction of the streets and buildings, ships during the medival times. It is free and you can get a audio set. Cross over the bridge lots of restaurants... More

Not really a lot of original material on display, mostly dioramas and plastic. The boat was a standout. It is free though.

One more place that you can visit with your children, small and quite well arrange, with interactive elements good for children and there parents. I like this type of museums - small, you don''t need a day to see everything and interactive.
