Museum of National Antiquities
Sweden's history from prehistoric times to the present day is
fascinatingly laid out in the Museum of National Antiquities in
Stockholm, which contains a hoard of archaeological artefacts and
treasures, including an impressive collection of gold objects
recovered from the tombs and treasure caches of the Vikings, going
back all the way to the Stone Age. The museum's most prized
possession dates from the Middle Ages: the splendid gold reliquary,
set with precious stones, which contained the skull of Saint
Elisabeth of Thuringia. The museum has a gift shop and cafe.
