Overview

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.

Based under the royal palace, this museum is really interesting, with royal coaches from 1700's, outfits worn by royal offspring, armour, weapons, etc, all with information boards in English. It is good for approximately 40 minutes to an hour. The fact it is free is...More

Really enjoyed this small, and free museum - full of royal history, clothes, carriages, and armoury - opened at 11 in the morning.

It is free to enter this museum, so we did just that to get out of the biting wind. There are costumes on display that have been worn by past Kings and Queen (although there was a modern dress on display that was worn recently...More

It`s awesome that tourists have an opportunity to see all this luxury free of charge! Marvellous carriages, old clothes and many other objects.

There was enough knight armour, swords and other guns and clothes and wagons that has incredibly good looking decoration and lot of detail. Our group have children ages 10, 13 and 17. We all like this place. It was open on Sunday.

The place is right next to the palace. But the entrance is a bit small so there's a chance that you might miss it. It's free. But the place is quite small. There are a lot of things but none of them really stands out...More

This was right near the royal treasury which wile having some cool stuff was really not worth 160 kronors for what was effectively a 5 minute exhibition. This on the other hand is at least a 15min to half hour exhibition with some decent things...More

Nice museum collocated under the royal family's castle in the old town. You can reach it by subway or just walking from the city center

An okay place to visit for half an hour and it is free to visit (a rare bonus in Stockholm). Most things of note in Sweden's history are in the first room, which are the best items. Less interesting after that.....

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)
