Contained within the royal palace, Royal Armory represents the country's oldest museum and houses a vast collection of objects and artifacts from Swedish military and royalty history. King Gustavus Adolphus founded the museum in 1628 to preserve his costumes from a campaign in Poland. Since then, thousands of items have been added to this impressive collection. You'll experience Swedish history through the remnants of the country’s past, including belongings of kings and queens dating back to the 15th century. The site houses 17th-century coaches, robes from royal weddings, and blood-stained attire from historic battles, such as the tunic that Gustav II Adolph was wearing when he was killed.

  • The museum is not huge, but it's free, and definitely worth the time you spend there. Several very unique objects.

  • It's free and worth a visit. You'll see clothing and armors worn by the the most prominent Swedish kings and their spouses and children. It's interesting, beautiful and well presented. The museum is small and it takes around 30-45 minutes to go through it.
  • FREE museum in the Royal Palace. It explains the history of the Sweden and provides ample historic items to view. There are four other activities to do in the palace - this has the most information and costs nothing, incredible! You can walk through quickly, but if you're someone who reads all of the signs, make sure to budget a good two hours to make it through.
