As early as end of the 900s the Vikings built a wooden blockade on the spot where the palace is located today and by the 1100s a defence fort had been constructed. Featuring objects that were rescued from the fire and newly created models, the museum depicts the Tre Kronor Palace's development from defence fort to the Renaissance palace of today.
The museum is located on the ground floor of the palace's northern wing, which is also the section which survived the fire the best. To access the museum you have to pass through the five-metre thick defence wall from the 1200s.
Buy a combination ticket and follow the palace´s history at the museum followed by a visit to the Royal Apartments.
The museum is open year round.
