Museum Three Crowns

The Museum Three Crowns (Tre Kronor) is a museum dedicated to the original Tre Kronor Palace in Stockholm, which was destroyed in a violent fire in 1697.

As early as end of the 900s the Vikings built a wooden blockade on the spot where the palace is located today and by the 1100s a defence fort had been constructed.

Featuring objects that were rescued from the fire and newly created models, the museum depicts the Tre Kronor Palace's development from defence fort to the Renaissance palace of today.

The museum is located on the ground floor of the palace's northern wing, which is also the section which survived the fire the best. To access the museum you have to pass through the five-metre thick defence wall from the 1200s.

With the entrance ticket you can follow the Palace's history by a visit to the Royal Apartments.

A large number of 3D models make up the more exciting and instructive part of the exhibition. Amongst these, three large replicas depict the castle's development from a medieval stronghold to a castle, which was on its way to transforming into a magnificent baroque castle before the palace fire in 1697. These three models were built by the artist Lars Agger. Studying these 3D models in detail is like setting off on an exciting historical adventure. Even experts are amazed and can often be heard saying “so this is what it looked like!"
