Happened into this venue one day on wy to harbor. Very interesting learned Sweden was quite warlike before 1900th century. Also sent 5000 troops to Finland in 2nd world war to fight Russians.

I've visited a lot of war/army museums, and this one is great. Very well done. I enjoyed every minute of it. Seriously, you have to go. Props for the "Wargaming exhibition"!

This is a chance to see unique items that have put a mark on international history (German Goliath, for example), not only that of Sweden. The free museum is definitely worth while with its large collection of arms, clothing, vehicles and so on.

With its high-end shopping facilities and
Michelin-starred restaurants, Östermalm is definitely
the poshest part of central Stockholm. Here you will
find Stockholm’s most majestic residential buildings,
a beautiful market hall from 1888 displaying gourmet
foods from around the world and the Swedish Royal
Dramatic Theatre with its awe-inspiring architecture.
At night, legendary nightclubs make the perfect
