Being in peace for over 200 years, Sweden does not have recent, rich, dramatic / horrifying collections of war memorabilia. Those collected in this museum therefore reflect its past as a major power in Northern Europe and its decline by territorial losses in the early...More

This museum was really worth to see. All the guns and Army tanks and etc was found there. I learned a lot about how they used these things during the war.

Excellent museum. I love war history and make it a point to always visit a countries military museum. This has been one of my favorities thus far. Very dense and thorough examination of the Swedish military through its history.

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
