Wonderful place to visit. Lot many things about history, weaponry used in the past, uniforms, tools used and many guns that are from 1800. Demonstration was good and people will find much time to roam around. Will get to know about coins, currency, etc. Kids will definitely love this place. Have lockers to keep out personal belongings.
Nice museum. Interesting topics. All texts are translated to English. Audioguide with app (bring your own headphones). Learn about the history of war and about Sweden. And all for free.
