    I like this place, they have so many interesting expositions. The most interesting part is that of Egypt, nothing to envy to other museums. Although I think it is temporary, there is an exhibition of football "Ultras" barras bravas. Admission is free.

    One of the very few free attractions in Stockholm and a very nice museum with exhibits from Egypt, rome, greece, cyprus. Also a great restaurant on the top floor

    Really nice Mediterranean region displays with English translations. The ultras exhibition is quite informative and enlightening.

    A nice and interactive museum in the heart of the city. We were greeted by a very friendly member of staff that explained everything to us and where to find each area etc. They have a small but very interesting collection of various civilisations (mainly Egyptian) and the entrance is free. The café inside, on the upper floor, is also very nice and they even offer a vegan option for lunch which was very appreciated!

    A very nice museum that is free to enter and explore. Located in Central Stockholm, it is host to artifacts from Cyprus and Egypt. There is a mummy in the lower floor and a digital interface where you can explore it layer by layer which is super cool! There is also an amazing cafe on the first floor!

    Small but nicely curated museum. Informative with everything translated to English and very nice collection especially the Egypt section. Also all for free. Shop is also quite nice with interesting books on the different areas. I've been a few times over the years as it is a nice place to wander around when quiet.

    Sprawling, detailed and free. Definitely worth a visit even if you only have a passing interest in antiquities or Egypt.

    The collection is not very big in comparison to the big museums in Europe but the presentation and information are very nice.
