It was an interesting visit to the museum. Best off all was the large stone which served as money. It was possible to listen mobile guide in English or Swedish languages.

A good find, with free admission and an excellent collection of coins and notes across time telling the history of money. Well worth a visit, but if you do, brush up on your Swedish because the exhibit translations are surprisingly less frequent than other museums.

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)
