Contained within the royal palace, Royal Armory represents the country's oldest museum and houses a vast collection of objects and artifacts from Swedish military and royalty history. King Gustavus Adolphus founded the museum in 1628 to preserve his costumes from a campaign in Poland. Since then, thousands of items have been added to this impressive collection. You'll experience Swedish history through the remnants of the country’s past, including belongings of kings and queens dating back to the 15th century. The site houses 17th-century coaches, robes from royal weddings, and blood-stained attire from historic battles, such as the tunic that Gustav II Adolph was wearing when he was killed.

  • An interesting view of old artifacts and clothing styles. Definitely recommend if you’re interested in more historical things. Good for being free, but not the biggest or most interesting unless...

  • I was pleasantly surprised with how interesting this place was. It was very cool to see what the royals wore, carried and rode in.

  • FREE museum in the Royal Palace. It explains the history of the Sweden and provides ample historic items to view. There are four other activities to do in the palace - this has the most information and costs nothing, incredible! You can walk through quickly, but if you're someone who reads all of the signs, make sure to budget a good two hours to make it through.
  • Fascinating museum with a huge selections of arms, armaments and dresses galore. Well worth a visit and absolutly free of charge! Have a brilliant social media account if you are into historical memes!
