  • Reasonable military museum, for me the interesting thing about this museum is the explanation of Swedish history which I know very little about.

  • Good surprise! Liked this museum a lot, it doesn't show only old weapons but explains the military history of Sweden. The exhibition is really nice to see, with wax figures of important or ordinary moments of military history.
  • Well made representations of historical events with clear clarifying text panels. Interesting as foreigner to learn from it. Best was the top floor. The other floors, being a bit closer to today’s time, felt a bit less structured on the time line. Even free entrance so definitely worth a visit.
