HAMN, Opening of Sweden’s first battlefield museum

This afternoon was the opening of the first battlefield museum in Sweden . The museum is located in Fisksättra, outside of the city of Stockholm.  It is very easy to go to the museum if you are traveling from Stockholm. You can take the Saltsjöbanan from Slussen to Fisksättra, it takes almost 20 minutes. You can also take a boat from Stockhom city.

The excavations in the area started seven years ago and the project to build the museum started 2010. It is a very interesting museum and it is the first museum that shows the battle 1719 when the Russian invasion was stopped in the Stockholm archipelago. The museum also show the history about Fisksättra and Baggensfjärden.  Here you can see the objects that has been excavated from the Viking Age.

It is a very good museum. There is a store with beautiful crafts from Nacka and Värmdö and the museum has a wonderful view over the bay. Sooner or later a restaurant will open in as well.

The museum is recommended to learn more about the swedish history.
