    Is amazing how they preserve the ship after drwing for 300years. The ship is a megastructure even the story is kind of sad but big applause to all the team that manage to bring this history alive

    No trip to Stockholm can be done without taking some time to stop in Gamla Stan. In fact, we probably came here 4-5 times over the course of our time. Food, museums and just the history are worth the time and effort to come by. Take a look at your options as there is so much packed into this little island. Don’t miss a short stop at the free medieval museum and of course a tour of the royal palace is cool as well. Lots of food and fika options all over. Experience a Viking style meal at Aifur, try some great sandwich options at Panem or have some unique wild boar at the Hairy Pig. If you’re looking for some Nordic style jewelry or gifts (or maybe a sword?), then stop by Handfaste for some cool options. Four of five trips and I still feel like we missed some stuff here.

    There is so many things to do in Djurgarden. Walking is a great way to see the park. Then there is the Museum to spend hours on a rainy day or for history buffs. Skensen is a must to see, especially at Christmas. They have the best Christmas market and special shows, plus the zoo. I love the park and go every time I visit Stockholm. Easy to get there by bus.

    Marvelous building, very impressive, worth visiting. It is one of the must visit attractions in Stockholm. It is beautiful, impressive, great location, and the Nobel price hall.

    Having visited the ABBA museum across the road, we thought it would be good to be outdoors to enjoy the dry weather. Skansen is a treat for walkers, as there are many paths to investigate and corners to explore. There's a treat around every bend, with red squirrels running wild, our first sighting of a wolverine, and playful bears wrestling in their den. There's also moose, bison, owls, reindeer, and more.

    The houses and farmsteads represent Sweden's history. There weren't many people around during our visit. This made it quiet, yet we were unsure of where we were allowed to go. Would it be OK to open a door perhaps? Those people we did see were dressed for the occasion in historical outfits, as befitting an open-air museum.

    After a long walk (and a slight slip on a muddy path), we were exhausted. Finding the exit isn't easy, but there are helpful maps dotted around, and you're given a guide when you purchase a ticket.

    We recommend a visit with a caveat: that you may not see everything you hope to see, but you may see something you've never seen before.

    OK - I was coerced into going to the ABBA museum and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it! You cant help but smile while you are there and feel like dancing on the way out. Actually, a lot of really great history of the band. Go!

    Only second time at this museum, but fell in love with it forever. It’s not a very convenient location, but sooo worth getting there and the views are nice. Beautiful area outside. They also have a super cool bar/lounge/restaurant inside. The museum is open till late (11 PM). You can come for some culture and hang out too. Exhibitions are always top notch. Nicely organized and curated. There are some social exhibits too, but I passed them with my eyes closed both times (too sensitive). Elizaveta Porodina exhibit ОКНА was out of this world! The New Black Vanguard and Andy Warhol exhibits were superb too. I also like a gift shop there. If we lived in Stockholm, we would for sure acquire a membership.

    A very interesting and comprehensive exhibition of Swedish royal heritage.

    Lots to see from, furnishings to medals to art to regalia. Including the Crown Jewels!!

    If your interested in history and the illustrious Swedish heritage you won’t be disappointed. Entrance fee isn’t cheap so be sure you have the interest as it is a long walk around to see everything.

    This is a beautiful place to visit with fantastic cafe and upmarket places to eat and some food stands. However it’s character seems to have changed since I last visited in 2019 when it was in its temporary building while to original was being renovated. At that time the majority of stands were selling over the counter food items, all of amazing interest and quality and fewer eating places. So the nature of the place has changed, still amazing but focusing on eating on site rather than selling produce. Please visit and make your own mind up.

    Oh my I loved everything about this place. It’s not only beautiful but it’s reach in nature and the buildings are gorgeous. The weather had us walking throughout the area for an entire day. Had some good seafood and drinks. Absolutely breathtaking.

    While I have been to other museums with Viking artifacts, I was blown away by the extensive Viking exhibit at this museum. I believe I spent 3 hours just in that exhibit. What particularly impressed me were the numerous interactive screens--each case had one and visitors could point to every object within the display to learn more details about the item. There were extensive notes in English that were written to appeal to both the Viking history novice and expert. I cannot recommend this exhibit and this museum (the other exhibits were also excellent) enough. I will absolutely return here on my next trip to Stockholm.

    The museum provides an exhaustive presentation of Sweden's military history of the years. Very balanced descriptions of wars conflicts. One of the best army museums I have ever visited. Nice samples of armory and weapons.

    Simply walking by this picturesque area of Stockholm is exhilarating. The architecture throughout Stockholm is quite impressive and this area is notable.

    A nice museum with well preserved weapons, clothes, wagons and even a leftover of a several hundred years horse. It's free entrance, and a perfect place for a history buff like me. Good information is found in every room about the items, and also of its old owners. I definately enjoyed this!
