About Swedish History Museum

The Swedish History Museum (Historiska Museet) in Stockholm offers a comprehensive series of exhibitions for the period spanning from the Stone Age to the Medieval period.

From prehistoric artifacts to Viking displays and beyond, the Swedish History Museum offers an insight into ten thousand years of history.

One of the most striking exhibits at the Swedish History Museum is its “Gold Room’, a heavily fortified underground chamber housing around 52kg of gold ranging from Viking relics to pieces from the Middle Ages. It is also home to one of the world's largest collection of Viking artefacts.

The museum offers audio guides in English, Swedish, French, German and Spanish, although these are on a first come first serve basis. These are not adapted for children, but the history trails in the Viking section are perfect for kids to follow.
