If you like history then Stockholm is the town for you. Here you will find numerous museums about everything between heaven and earth. Today we will be guiding all you expats through all the museums that Stockholm has to offer. Come along now, there is much to learn. 

Tekniska Museet 

The museum about technology. Here you will find a lot of different technology dating back centuries or even further. Located right outside of the city centre, this museum is housed in a multiple story building and they certainly did not waste the space. In the cellar, you will find an amazing exhibition about mining and the children centre. It is here that all kids can do some cool experiments to spark their interest in science.

Another bonus. You can book in a visit at the 4D cinema. It is exactly what it sounds like, a Cinema not in 3D but in 4D. We cannot explain what you will experience in there. The only way to find out is to go there yourself. You will not regret it, we can say that much.

The Medieval Museum

A few years ago, Stockholm decided that they needed more parking spaces. Therefore, construction quickly began. It halted just as quickly when they started digging and found something amazing. They found a medieval part of Stockholm no one even knew existed. As you might expect, the parking lot got moved elsewhere and the site is now a museum. Here you can experience live in the dark ages when people lived right there. They have rebuilt an environment that will truly make you feel like you have been transported hundreds of years back through time. It really is quite amazing, and your kids are sure to love it. The great thing about it is that it is located right in the middle of Stockholm, next to the castle.
