As well as the banquet hall for galas and the Guest Apartment which host the visiting dignitary during state visits.

    • The Tre Kronor Museum

      In this museum you can learn more about the Tre Kronor Palace in Stockholm, destroyed by a fire in 1697. The museum tells of the story from its origins as a fort, through to an opulent Renaissance palace. A visit to the museum will also take you through a surviving defence wall dating back to the 1200s.

    • The Treasury

      See the Swedish royal family’s crown jewels and regalia in the palace’s Royal Treasury. Housed in the dark vaults in the cellar these priceless regalia are under lock and key. See Gustav Vasa´s sword of state, Erik XIV´s crown, sceptre and orb and Lovisa Ulrika´s crown – among other crowns and the silver baptismal font from 1696 which is still being used by the Royal family.

    • King Gustav III's Museum of Antiquities

      King Gustav III's Museum of Antiquities is deemed one of the oldest museum’s in Europe, opening first in 1794. Thanks to King Gustav III and his keen interest in art and antiquities, we can enjoy and appreciate his personal collection of 200 sculptures which he procured from Italy and around Europe.
