  • This was our first stop in the City as we were getting used to the layout. Nice museum of the history . There is also a good cafe attached where we stopped for lunch. Would recommend.

  • Nice museum with interesting stuff in it. However some of the items are prototype. The model box gives you very nice idea about how things was in the old ages. It worth to visit during rainy day!
  • Well laid out and with all descriptions in English as well as Swedish. We could have spent much longer than the 2 hours we had available. If we had time we would go back.
