  • The museum has collected a wealth of information about the history of Sweden. Many sections devoted to life, crafts, customs of Sweden. The exposition of doll houses is very interesting. Visited the museum with great pleasure. It was impressive that on the ground floor there was allocated a special place for "parking" of prams. And, I must say, it was not empty. There are places where you can relax, there is a café on the ground floor. The price of the ticket includes an audio guide (available in Russian language). The museum is definitely worth the attention!

  • Two things are good. The building impressive and interesting in itself, the rebuilding of the home apartment where you can go in and even feel the stale smell... But the rest is FÖRVÅNANDSVRT uninteresting and above all extremely old fashion presented. The collections are huge but that for many hundreds of meters look at the plates, hats and old spoons in old glasmontrar with poor description is not enticing 2019. In a few places, attempts have been made to recreate some environments, but the technical solutions are limited to some screens that display information. Total lack of interactivity-except for the youngest visitors who are embankments around. All Muséum have to think about how to attract visitors with more than one mind-sight. Another objection is the selection. It is not unexpected Dalarna that dominates in everything-no wonder that this landscape characterizes most of what we consider to be Swedish, but the southern part of Sweden is shrift treated. That Skåne had an intensive trade with Germany and thus received influences from there is handled in a subordinate clause. That the province also belonged to Denmark longer than Sweden and avoided Gustav Wasa as king, is obviously not mentioned at all.

  • For such a grand and imposing structure, I initially expected it to be more packed with art / artifacts than I actually discovered. BUT, my expectations are irrelevant, as the collections, displays and deep dive into to Norse cultural history is so thoroughly presented that a single day still really is not enough time to absorb the information presented. From a designers viewpoint, I particularly enjoyed the progressions of furniture, interior lodgings, clothing and household items, many of which influenced other cultures, my own in particular. A great place to spend a rainy day.
  • Fabulous museum that covers the different periods in Swedish History from neolithic times to the modern age. The emphasis here is on the development of the peoples of Sweden during this time and how different societies and systems evolved. The exhibits (of which there are many) are all interesting and explained quite succinctly and in some depth in Swedish and English. Some of the sections were closed for renovations but I will be back. Cafe was pretty good too!
