    ▪️Free entrance 🆓 ▪️ You can pay in entrance 20 krones and your kid, together with you in hobby room can create a flag 🚩. With a lot of stuff. ▪️ Not big museum. One hours or maybe 1:30 minutes it's absolutely enough. ▪️ Nice souvenir shop. Toilet and locked cabins for stuff.

    Museum is free for all and is absolutely fascinating. If you want to understand the cultural heritage of Stockholm and Gamla Stan especially, then this is the place to go definitely. It gives you an in depth understanding of what Stockholm was like during the Medieval period and also a short and brief understanding of what life entailed during that period of time. It also offers a fascinating insight into people's homes in the past and how they lived as well as models of the old town and battles which took place. Definitely worth a visit and expect to spend between 1 to 2 hours in there!

    A very nice museum that is free to enter and explore. Located just infront of the Parliament, it provides an amazing description of the history of Stockholm with a medieval model town. A must visit if you are in the area. Can be completed in under an hour.

    So glad I finally visited this! It focuses on the area from about 1200—1520s, so the founding and early days of Stockholm. Lots to see, with engaging exhibits and interesting details. All signage is in Swedish and English. Spent about 2 hours and tried to look at everything.

    Pretty museum about Stockholm during the middle ages, placed where medieval remains were found some decades ago as they were digging a car park for parliament. Interesting information in English and Swedish, and also things to see for kids. Free entrance. As it's underground, it can be difficult to find - follow the signs. Friendly staff

    Great place to learn a bit of Swedish history for free. The museum is under the Bridge (I could find it at first sight). Inside you can find ruins of a stone wall dating from the 16th century (the museum was built around it) and a lot of archaeological findings. Also it explains who founded Stockholm, and the previous capitol cities before that. The history of King's and Queens, a bit of the viking age. So much fun!

    I couldn't ask for more from a museum with free entrance! It gives a medieval vibe and the dolls there are very realistic!

    Fantastic little museum that introduces visitors to the history of Stockholm. Great reconstructions and nice display of local archaeological finds. Open on Easter Sunday and it's free. Great place to bring kids or to use up an hour and a half during your visit to the city.

    A nice museum without an entrance fee. There is a whole small village in there that is designed in a way that really makes you feel like you are walking to your baker to get bread to feed your family in Middle Ages

    Not the largest collection, but it's pretty great and free. Large reconstructions of houses and archeological finds on display. Worth a stop. There are lockers to put your stuff in.
