The magnificent museum building from the 18th century is situated at Riddargatan in Stockholm. It was originally a repair shop for cannons but has functioned as a museum since 1879, with the task of exploring how wars have influenced our lives. Peter Zander, head of public relations and exhibitions, explains the idea behind the exhibitions: “A war is spectacular, and the objects we display tell a story full of power and drama of the time when they were being used. Many weapons are carefully crafted with beautiful details, but as we don’t want to glorify wars – we also show the tragedy through various realistic sceneries.
