Holiday hunt at the Royal Palace

In the gloomy cellar vaults of the Musuem Three Crowns (Museum Tre Kronor), we'll hunt for the mediaeval king Gustav Vasa's lost gold coins!

During the autumn holiday week there will be extra activities for children in Museum Three Crowns at the Royal Palace. Eskil was Gustav Vasa's servant, and was entrusted with taking care of Gustav Vasa's personal funds… But where has he hidden the gold coins?

Carry out the task by yourself during the museum's ordinary opening hours. All children who take part will get a reward, and three lucky participants will also win an extra prize. A map is available from the ticket office, on which participants can mark the locations of the coins they find. The map is available in Swedish, English and Finnish.

Family tour in Swedish

There will also be a family tour of the museum on Saturdays and Sundays at 10:30 (in Swedish). Our guide will take you on a journey stretching back a thousand years behind the defences, specially adapted for younger visitors.

Always at the Royal Palace

A visit to the Royal Apartmens is included in the palace ticket. Our image hunts (available at the cash desk) are an exciting way to explore the grand halls.

The Tre Kronor Museum is located beneath the Royal Palace, and tells the story of the Palace's mediaeval history. Here you can also see traces from the palace's very oldest times – to access the museum, you need to pass through the five-metre thick 13th century defensive wall. Photo: Michael Steinberg
