We stumbled upon this on accident. I love all things to do with Marie Antoinette, so this was a real treat for me! My female friend was also interested, but our husbands were bored rather quickly. The old coaches are very nicely restored, and the...More

Located under the Royal Palace in the cellars, the display of the old royal coaches is simple, but you still see how incredibly spectacular they were, and how much more so they must have been when newly made. Absolutely ginormous and beautifully decorated (with very...More

Carriage exhibit, at the time of my visit there was also an exhibit dedicated to love between Marie Antoinette and Swedish king.

We enjoyed the history of the coaches, the opulence of the Marie Antoinette era, the clothing and weapon displays. It is a little dark, but that is to help preserve the items on display.

The Armory is apparently in the process of a renovation so their only exhibit was on old Royal coaches and a brief story of a Swedish Aristocrat's relationship with Marie Antoinette. The story was actually a bit interesting although there were a few gaps in...More

By the term Royal Armory I expected a lot. This has a collection of few swords belonging to various kings and their gear like, amulets, head bands & clothes. There is a description about all of them but frankly, there is nothing royal about it....More

This is a fairly small museum that is free to enter. I enjoyed looking at all of the royal carriages, costumes and learning a bit more about Marie Antionette. It's definitely worth a look if you're in the area.

Loved the sword displays. Many swords. Loved the royal coaches. Its small. But I thoroughly enjoyed it. Must see. This section was free. I actually ducked in, because it was raining. Thank goodness i did

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
