Royal Armoury - Livrustkammaren

Yesterday I visited The Royal Armoury, located in the spectacular and beautiful cellar vaults of the Royal Palace in Stockholm.

I viewed the 'I love you madly' exhibition that takes a look at the Swedish count Hans Axel von Fersen and his relationship to one of the of the world´s most famous women, the French queen Marie-Antoinette. The exhibition included many carriages, though the main carriage exhibition was advertised to be starting soon. What I saw was very interesting but relatively small so I only spent around half an hour here. 

Nonetheless, it is free entry so makes a great addition if you are visiting the Royal Palace or the old town (Gamla Stan). Also if you have children, there is a children’s room for them to try dresses and knight costumes, play, read and draw.

All the best, Leia

I agree that it is a great place to visit, even for just a little while. However I will say that they should definitely update the signs around Gamla Stan, as it took a while to find.

Very interesting. I will have to check it out the next time I am in Stockholm.

Happy creating!
