Historiska Museet information
The national historical collection awaits at this enthralling museum. From Iron Age skates and a Viking boat to medieval textiles and Renaissance triptychs, it spans over 10,000 years of Swedish history and culture. There's an exhibit about the medieval Battle of Gotland (1361), an excellent multimedia display on the Vikings, a room of altarpieces from the Middle Ages, a vast textile collection and a section on prehistoric culture.
An undisputed highlight is the subterranean Gold Room, a dimly lit chamber gleaming with Viking plunder and other treasures, including the jewel-encrusted Reliquary of St Elisabeth (who died at 24 and was canonised in 1235). The most astonishing artefact, however, is the 5th-century seven-ringed gold collar discovered in Västergötland in the 19th century. Weighing 823g, it is decorated with 458 symbolic figures.
