What makes this tour special

Explore two of Stockholm’s renowned museums with an expert private guide: the Viking Museum and the amazing open-air Skansen Museum dedicated to Swedish life, culture and industry. 

On your private tour, you will: 

These two museums are really exciting experiential journeys through time, exploring the fascinating history of Sweden in really interactive ways. 

Your first stop is the Viking Museum, completely dedicated to the history of the legendary Vikings in Sweden. The museum is divided into two parts. The first part you’ll visit is the exhibition in which you’ll see examples of the mighty Viking Longboats, and learn about these brutal seafaring warriors. See if you can wield a heavy Viking sword, and feel the weight of a helmet. Learn about their everyday lives, what they ate, how they dressed, their religion and how they lived. 

The second part is an immersive ride called Ragnfrid’s Saga, an 11-minute journey through a year in the life of a Viking family in the year 963, narrated by a Viking woman called Ragnfrid. Your voyage begins in Frösala Gård, home to Ragnfrid and her husband Harald, where you see how they live, before venturing into the wider world. Witness the Viking raids in the west and the slave trade to the east. Separate the legends from the facts as you sail with the Vikings! 

Next up, visit the world's first open-air museum, Skansen, founded in 1891. Here you can immerse yourself in five centuries of fascinating Swedish history. Around 150 traditional buildings from across the country scatter the hilltop, providing a real glimpse of what it was like to be Swedish hundreds of years ago. 

Make sure not to miss the glass-blower cottage, where you can watch the skilled craftsman transform glowing blobs of liquid glass into intricate pieces of art. The Nordic Zoo, with elk, reindeer, wolverines and other native wildlife, is also worth exploring, especially in the height of spring when the zoo is full of baby critters.
