Situated in the vaults underneath the Royal Palace, The Royal Armory Museum is truly a historical treat. The museum’s collection spans over 500 years of royal history replete with sagas of love and murder, weddings and death, victory and defeat. While at the museum, you can enjoy everything, from royal costumes, weapons, armors and carriages to preserved stomach contents of conspirators and assassins. Also on exhibit here is King Gustav II’s horse, with its hide fitted over a wooden frame and Karl XII’s hat, complete with the assassin’s bullet hole.
