Army Museum reviews
Reasonable military museum, for me the interesting thing about this museum is the explanation of Swedish history which I know very little about.

Good surprise! Liked this museum a lot, it doesn't show only old weapons but explains the military history of Sweden. The exhibition is really nice to see, with wax figures of important or ordinary moments of military history.
Well made representations of historical events with clear clarifying text panels. Interesting as foreigner to learn from it. Best was the top floor. The other floors, being a bit closer to today’s time, felt a bit less structured on the time line. Even free entrance so definitely worth a visit.
