What is amazing about this museum is the fact that the museum opened in 1794 and the sculptures inside have been isplayed exactly the way they were when the museum opened. This is also the oldest museum in Stockholm.
Gustav III had gone down to Italy and most of what he aquired during his trip is displayed here. There is an interesting website with information about Gustav III. Click here to go there.

This is a very beautiful statue of King Gustav III on Skeppsbron in the Gamla Stan area. Skeppsbron (implying "The Ship's Bridge" in swedish) is a street by the waterside in Gamla stan, that stretches from the bridge Strömbron in front of the Royal Palace to Slussen.
King Gustav III watches over Skeppsbron the promenade that runs along the harbour front at the edge of the old town. This used to be the promenade passed the old castle an area that was not built on due to defence reasons. The statue was erected in 1808.
This is yet another statue of king Gustav III of Sweden and is located very close to the Royal Palace at Gamla Stan.
Gustav III's Museum of Antiquities, consisting of a collection of art and sculptures, is located in the Royal Palace in Gamla Stan. It is only open in the summer months.
