Stockholm landmark: Museum of the Middle Ages
The Museum of the Middle Ages in Stockholm is located under the North Bridge in the city center on the island of Holy Spirit (Helgeandsholmen). It is below ground level, under low hemispherical vaults, between the opera building and the royal palace.
The museum opened in the 1980s as a result of a major archaeological study on the island caused by the reconstruction of the old Rixdag building. Archaeologists discovered the ruins of the city wall, which was erected in the 1530s. Also, a medieval cemetery of HelgeandShuset, which gave the name of the island.
In the museum you can see not only the remnants of the fortress wall, but also expositions dedicated to medieval worms of labor, crafts, everyday life, child education – all aspects of the life of medieval Stockholm.
