This army museum in Stockholm, tells the Swedish war history in a fantastic way. The route through the museum takes you through all eras, from the Vikings to the present.
The tour starts on the second floor where the era of the Vikings till the 19th century is dispayed. Extra attention is paid to the era when Sweden was a great power. On the first floor you can see the period 1901 to present. Some of this is about the First and Second World War. Sweden was neutral in both wars, but the preparedness of Sweden is treated, there is a Raoul Wallenberg room and there is attention to the Swedes who voluntarily served in foreign armies. There is also some attention to the Second World War in general. On the ground floor you can see temporary exhibitions, the museum shop and restaurant.
The finishing of the artifacts in the museum is of a very high quality level. Especially the used dolls are phenomenal, they used lifelike waxworks and stuffed animals which brings the museum to life. The photographs show only the WWII section of the museum.
For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
