  • Full of nice expositions with some touchable things. Also you can try some historical clothes. Interesting story and I really like the last par - about “Who’s the truth”  more »
  • Very beautiful collections, a lively presentation and a real interest for who is interested in history. The entrance is free and everything is done to make the visitor feel at ease. Worth a visit!

  • Good museum with free admission. The collection was rather nice and informative of Sweden's military history throughout the years and up to the modern times. Good place to spend a few hours.
  • As far as I myself am concerned, it's a great museum. But my rather young son did not find it all that interesting (he's only 18 months, so we didn't really expect him to). Just saying, since many reviews note it as great for kids. I bet he will find it a lot more interesting in a couple of years, but as of right now he for some strange reason loved walking around in the bv206 they have set up. The displays, not so much
