My teens weren't that interested in this museum but my husband definitely loved it. The Viking exhibition was a good, interactive attraction that I'm sure younger children than mine would love. Great that in summer it's open every day.

This museum is a must for adults and kids. Smart, clever, progressive, hands on. It's free. It's provocative. It shouldn't be missed. Far better use of time than going to Skansen.

The museum has several sections on Swedish history which do not necessarily link to each other chronologically, so you might get lost or confused. We visited the Vikings and general history afterwards. The artifacts were not amazing, but you'll get to know about the country's...More

Interesting artifacts about the vikings, including a nice gold room full of jewelry. The museum is free and includes also children activities. English explanation is widely available. Free bag deposit boxes are also available.
