Set in the former kitchen/cellars of the oldest part of the current palace, this museum is the only remaining element of the former Tre Kronor Castle that was destroyed in 1697. Essentially, it's a very well presented collection of artifacts and remnants of the Old...More

This museum tells the story of the old castle, and the forms it took before its current form. We visited this museum as part of our exploration of the Royal Palace. It's worth seeing as part of that context, to help understand the history of...More

This museum shows you the castle that preceded, and served as a basis for the current Palace. It even contains firewood storage that is still in use. Getting an interpretation of the pre-fire history of the palace/castle, and seeing the relics was very enlightening.

Brings you down below ground where the palace walls used to be. There are assorted artifacts from the medieval era, and some interesting scale models. The lighting is suitably dim, so you feel more immersed.

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)
