Contained within the royal palace, Royal Armory represents the country's oldest museum and houses a vast collection of objects and artifacts from Swedish military and royalty history. King Gustavus Adolphus founded the museum in 1628 to preserve his costumes from a campaign in Poland. Since then, thousands of items have been added to this impressive collection. You'll experience Swedish history through the remnants of the country’s past, including belongings of kings and queens dating back to the 15th century. The site houses 17th-century coaches, robes from royal weddings, and blood-stained attire from historic battles, such as the tunic that Gustav II Adolph was wearing when he was killed.

Royal Armory reviews
The museum is right next to the Royal Palace and it offers you a very good image of the other decades. At the begining I was a little bit skeptikal about visiting this museum but it was really worth..... more »
Pleasantly surprised by this interesting well laid out museum. Very helpful knowledgable guides & actual replicas you can pick up ! more »
This museum is amazing and well worth a visit! I visit once a year at least and am always fascinated by all the fantastic displays. So very interesting! They really do have a great collection of historical artifacts!
Very interesting with several hands-on exhibits for kids. We loved seeing the cool clothes people wore so long ago. The Google Map directions take you to the wrong entrance, but it is in the basement of the Royal Palace. It's on the south side of the palace near the east corner.
