Overview

The Royal Armoury (Livrustkammaren) is a popular family museum located in the cellars of the Royal Palace in Stockholm. The Royal Armoury shows the history of Sweden’s kings and queens from the 15th century until to day.For almost five hundred years items once in the possession of Swedish monarchs and their families have been kept in the Royal Armoury. From generation to generation, they have built up an ever-expanding collection of memories from the country's different dynasties, evoking well-known events in Swedish history.See, for example, the costume worn by Gustav III at that fateful masked ball in 1792, Charles XII's muddy uniform from Fredriksten in 1718, and the blood-stained shirts and elk-hide buff coat worn by Gustav II Adolf at the Battle of Lützen in 1632.

This is a great little museum, free of charge, and a comfortable climate to escape heat and sun. I think it was lit perfectly fine to see the exhibits and read placards, see where you are going, etc. The old brick walls and beautiful archways...More

I like old weapons and everything equestrian and this is a place to be, besides all the weapons, uniforms and horse related stuff there are the royal jewels often seen on Queen Silvia.

Very dark inside compared to the National Coach Museum in Lisbon. Just few coachs and some dresses. The video presented was nice is it brought us back to XVII century

Consider 30 min. It's really small museum, with 8-10 Royal Transports, not sure if I would recommend if this had a cost, but considering it's free, I recommend a quick stop.

The exhibit was mostly about carriages and a love between the queen of France and a Duke from Sweden. It was interesting and I didn’t know anything about this so I read all the signs. The carriages were nice. It was worth the stop.

The Royal Armory was in a basement so it was cool on a hot day. There were some fascinating displays to see.

The first time we went to the castle, the armory was closed and they were nice enough to write us passes for entrance on another day. I was really happy when we came back to see it. The artifacts in the armory are breathtaking. Beautiful...More

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)
