First stop was the Medieval Museum. This aims to show how Stockholm would have looked in the medieval period, including parts of the walls. Not a big museum but a number of interesting exhibits.
|You don't see many examples of early handguns.
|This diorama covers the Battle of Brunkeberg 1471
|A very large longship.
Next stop was the Royal Armoury, which is part of the Royal Palace. A number of unusual and eyecatching pieces of armour and other uniforms from the medieval period to the present day.
|Not sure if this helmet would make me scared or fall over laughing!
|Gustavus and the Thirty Years War
Finally, I went looking for the old Royal church in Riddarholmen to pay my respects to Gustavus Adolphus. This is the church but sadly closed.
