The Basics

Encompassing a series of reconstructed medieval buildings, the underground 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, step inside a medieval home, learn about popular beliefs at the local church, and peek into workshops to see how craftsmen and traders earned a living, then, if you dare, you can brave a trip to the gallows. The exhibition also features 180 feet (55 meters) of the original town wall, a medieval graveyard, and a runestone.

For those with an interest in history, visiting the Museum of Medieval Stockholm is the perfect complement to a tour of Stockholm’s Old Town (Gamla Stan), one of the largest and best preserved medieval city centers in Europe. These tours are another great way to get insights into the city’s history.
