Another free to enter fascinating display in Stockholm. The smallest coin, the biggest, the heaviest, the most worthless paper money and just about everything else about money that you could ever think about. Far too much to take in and read all in one visit,...More

A good find, with free admission and an excellent collection of coins and notes across time telling the history of money. Well worth a visit, but if you do, brush up on your Swedish because the exhibit translations are surprisingly less frequent than other museums.

Although not a must see the Royal Coin Cabinet was really interesting - history of money was fascinating and it was interesting to see all the ways we have figured out to pay each other!

take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
