The Royal Armoury (Livrustkammaren) is a popular family museum located in the cellars of the Royal Palace in Stockholm. The Royal Armoury shows the history of Sweden’s kings and queens from the 15th century until to day.For almost five hundred years items once in the possession of Swedish monarchs and their families have been kept in the Royal Armoury. From generation to generation, they have built up an ever-expanding collection of memories from the country's different dynasties, evoking well-known events in Swedish history.See, for example, the costume worn by Gustav III at that fateful masked ball in 1792, Charles XII's muddy uniform from Fredriksten in 1718, and the blood-stained shirts and elk-hide buff coat worn by Gustav II Adolf at the Battle of Lützen in 1632.

This museum is free and fabulous!!! Second floor has kids area to learn more about royal life, tangibly. Armor, clothing, royalty, coaches... It was super cool and can't beat the price (FREE)!

This is a small museum which is worth one hour to visit. It is visually captivating with all the artifacts, carriages, jewels and clothing. Exhibits are well lit and a good curatorial effort.

The royal carriage section was excellent - very Cinderella! I also enjoyed the assassination section which displayed the clothing worn by the King when he was shot. Very interesting and free so you can't go wrong!

The fact that it is a free entry does help but this is a really interesting museum with the bonus of a few tips for removal of Royalty without resorting to Madame Guillotine.Some great displays of deseased King's bloodied shirts and stuffed favourite horses and...More

An extraordinary museum, lots of armor, clothes, and vehicles from the past times. A couple of really beautiful royal carriages, just like in fairytales. And there's no admission.

It's free and a real eye opener. We see films from Hollywood of knights in armour on horseback galloping lightly towards each other in battle, but when you see the real thing as you do here you can but wonder how not only the knights...More

One of my favourite museums, completely free of charge. It is even better if you take a guided tour (I only did the Swedish ones) as the staff knows a gossip or two that follow the exhibited pieces. Fun for kids and grown-ups.

We deeply enjoyed this exhibition from the cellars. Clothing, shields, armours and swords from different times with some background stories to understand better. Wish the panels had English as the pages where you need to search are not convenient.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
