In this post I am going to talk a bit about four Museums in Stockholm with FREE ENTRANCE. The past days it has been raining most of the time and I didn’t want to stay at home, therefore I decided to visit some Museums because they are always a good option when the weather is not good.

My first option was the Moderna Museet, which is situated in Skeppsholmen. This museum has permanent artistic works but it also offers different artist exhibitions each week.  It does not take too much time to see it because it is small, so it is a perfect plan for any day. The entrance to the permanent collection is free.

The second option is the Etnografiska Museet, which I found really interesting. Once you are at Stockholm’s Central Station you have to go outside and take bus 69 Stockholm Blockhusudden, the stop is  Museiparken (travel time 18 minutes). Be aware of the time, because this museum usually closes at 17pm.

It is one of Sweden’s four National Museums of World Culture. Specifically, in this museum you will see objects, clothes and some things from the Native Americans, Japanese and Indian cultures, among other things.

The next option is the Museum of Medieval. In this museum you can experience the medieval part of Stockholm. You will see the original Stockholm's city hall in the 16th century, as well as a war ship, reconstructed buildings, workshops, that is, how was everyday life in the past. By the way, this museum is near the Royal Palace (Kungliga Slottet), so if you are planning to go to this museum, I will then recommend you to go at 12 to the Royal Palace to see the guard change, and then visit the Museum.

Finally, I visited the Hallwylska Museet. This is a small museum that is situated in the centre of the city. Here you will find many antiques, guns, swords, porcelain, silver, paintings and other collectibles. The day I went it was raining a lot and the museum was crowded, so we had to wait a while in queue. When I entered the museum, I saw that most of the people were doing a guided tour that costs 60 SEK. I think it might be a good option because in this museum there aren’t placards with information about the objects. By the way, this museum closes on Mondays.
