Stockholm visitor card
**UPDATE FOR 2016 AND BEYOND: The Stockholm Card was discontinued on December 31, 2015 and is no longer available to purchase.**
If museums are your thing & you won’t feel satisfied until you have visited Stockholm’s vast array of museums & galleries, then this is the option for you to see Stockholm on a budget.
The Stockholm Visitor card gives you access to over 80 museums & attractions including Vasa (a museum housing the salvaged wreckage of the vasa ship), Skansen (open-air museum) & The Swedish History Museum (aka, The National Historical Museum). If you have a specific museum in mind that you want to visit, it is worth checking on their website to see whether it is covered by the card (most are, but not all).
The price also includes free travel on public transport (including the tube/ underground) & when you would otherwise pay 25Kr per tube journey (allowing for 75 minutes of travel time) – it may become worthwhile to get the Stockholm visitor card when you work out costs of travel + entry fees altogether.
The 5 day pass is the best value if you are here for several days (working out at 210Kr per day), followed by the 3 day pass (265Kr per day).
Top Tip – If you buy it via the website, make sure you click to collect in Stockholm to avoid any delivery charge.
