The museum housed in the 17th-century Södra Stadshuset building, is dedicated to the history of the city, tracing its development from a fortified settlement to a contemporary metropolis. The collection of Sweden's largest municipal museum comprises 300 thousand historical objects, 20 thousand works of art and 3 million photographs, part of which are on view in the permanent exhibition entitled Stockholm through the Ages, opened in 2002 to mark the Swedish capital's 750th Anniversary. Alongside the permanent display, objects from the museum's collection can also be viewed as part of various themed exhibitions.
