This museum describes the history of wars and all wars Sweden was involved in during all years from the vikings to this day even if the Swedish last war was in 1815 when Sweden lost Pommern to Napoleon Bonaparte. I liked this musuem and I guess I have spent around four hours to walk around and see all things inside there. One of the best tourist attractions you can find in Stockholm. I will suggest that you take abreak and have a lunch or afika in Druvan restaurant at the museum. They have many nice interesting souvenirs you can buy when you leave the musuem. Many interesting books, but if you are a non-Swedish reader the size maybe get less. There are also many other things you can buy of course. Dont go here on Mondays, then it is closed. Young people under under 19 can go for free.
Discover the Army Museum – one of Sweden’s best history museums. The museum re-opened in 2000 in refurbished premises, with a completely new exhibition depicting Swedish history from Viking times onwards. Here you will get an authentic picture of war as experienced by the soldiers and their families.
Uniforms and weapons are displayed by means of realistic scenes using life-size manikins, and original artefacts are presented in display cases. The museum takes up three floors; it begins on the top floor in a room that describes war in general and from there visitors proceed round the exhibition from Viking times up until the present day.
The museum also has rooms given over to specific topics such as, sickness and medical treatment, mercenaries, crime and punishment and animals in war, and there is also a display of weapons. The Trophy Chamber contains an exhibition of priceless treasures like flags, banners, and musical instruments, that Swedish soldiers have captured in times of war.
The museum’s shop has a wide assortment of books together with gifts for big and small, including games, puzzles, tin soldiers, souvenirs and handicrafts.
