Lonely Planet review
Livrustkammaren is part of the palace complex, but can be visited separately. It’s a family attic of sorts, crammed with engrossing memorabilia spanning more than 500 years of royal childhoods, coronations, weddings and murders. Meet Gustav II Adolf’s stuffed battle steed, Streiff; see the masquerade costume worn by Gustav III on the night he was shot; or let the kids try on a suit of armour in the playroom. There’s a fairy-tale collection of coronation coaches in the basement, including the outrageously rococo number used for the crowning of Adolf Fredrik and Ulrika Eleonora in 1751. Free guided tours at 2pm; children’s tours 1pm.
