Museum of Medieval Stockholm (Medeltidsmuseet)
Built around the remnants of the capital’s 16th-century city walls and crammed with significant archaeological finds, the Museum of Medieval Stockholm (Medeltidsmuseet or, less commonly, Medeltidsmuseum) belies its small size with a series of fascinating permanent exhibitions. If you've ever wondered how Stockholmers lived in medieval times, this is the place to find out, with informative exhibitions and full-size replica buildings offering a unique glimpse into the Swedish Middle Ages.
Encompassing a series of reconstructed medieval buildings, the museum takes visitors on a tour through the lives of the city’s former inhabitants, with displays including everything from period clothing to historic shipping vessels. Stroll through the medieval market square, learn about popular beliefs at the local church and peek into workshops to see how craftsmen and traders earned a living, then step inside a medieval home or brave a trip to the gallows.
