We ound very interesting the viking section (including the presentation of the Birka village), the idea of making a year counter for the Swedish history with a lot of enterntainment gadgets to discover. Very very smart created and very interactive (including for the children).

I liked the museum, it was just one strange thing, museum also showed Kurdish person producing bells in his own country. I wondered what does it have to do with Swedish, or Norse history ?

This museum was quite large, and was also free. Having not ever learned much about Swedish history, this museum taught me a lot. There is also a nice cafe/restaurant that is inexpensive.

It woulh have been a great experience if not for quite many missleadings. Either the captions are wrong or are intentional wrong. As a total the museum is interesting, a window in the life of Scandinavians.
