History Museum · Hidden Gem · Museum
Known for its gold room full of treasure and artifacts from the Viking age, The Swedish History Museum houses more than 10 million objects and works dating back to Mesolithic times. It aims to educate visitors about Sweden's archeological and cultural history. Though Bengt Romare and George Scherman designed the modern building in the 20th century, most of the artifacts on display are much older. Be sure to spend time viewing the gold and silver collection, Viking objects from World Heritage Site Birka, and famous Swedish artwork. You can plan Stockholm trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • A great place to kill a few hours if you go slow. Not everything is super interesting, but there is a lot of history to go through. Take your time and read the facts...that is what makes everything cool!
