Just under 1 hour from Stockholm, in the town of Strängnäs, is Scandinavia’s largest military vehicle museum – Arsenalen. A museum filled with vehicles, both with tracks and wheels, from the early 1900s to modern machines of the present day.

Witness the smells and technical development, and confront the fate of war from our times.

The soldier’s croft exhibition takes us back to the 1700s and portrays a piece of Swedish cultural history. An authentic environment with a soldier’s croft from the era makes for an exciting visit.

We also have a unique collection of tin miniatures set in scenes.

A fantastic piece of handiwork including Alexander the Great, Emperor Napoleon, and Vikings and Samis in the Swedish mountains.

During the summer, exhibitions are arranged, when vehicles are displayed and visitors are offered an exclusive ride.
