    Nice Museum! Liked how they had it in date order as you go up the floors. Very informative and interesting. I liked the part about Ulla Winlad and her story. Plus it's free...bonus!! Make sure you have a couple of hours to spare for this one if you like to read the plaques properly.

    Whenever visiting Stockholm and Gamla Stan area, make sure to drop by at Stockholm City Museum (Stadsmuseet i Stockholm) located at Södermalmstorg/Ryssgården, near to Tunnelbanestation Slussen. The museum has a very nice architecture, spacious, and relaxing atmosphere. The exhibits are interesting and many are interactive, frequently updated. The hat room exhibit with the virtual butler is quite hilarious. It's free entrance and friendly staff also makes it a great place to visit for family, friends, students and guests - and learn something about Stockholm and its rich history and culture. Also check out their website for group guided tour schedules/themes.

    An excellent journey through the history of Stockholm! Very well designed museum with free entrance! Definitely worth visiting if you are in Stockholm!

    A free museum! That too is really well maintained, with three floors, each dedicated to 3 different time periods in the history of Stockholm. It even has audio visual experiences of historical sounds and sights. It's right next to Slussen T-bana station. Loved it!

    A nice museum to learn about the history of the city, free entry. all explanations are in 2 languages, Swedish and English. really nice and well kept. only flaw - too many stairs because it was built in an old building but this also characterizes it more

    It's a 4 floor building so there is much to see. Walk around and know about Stockholm's history from the beginning to now.

    Personally I think that the medieval museum covers the same information better. The museum is still cute to see and is free and has English descriptions
