The Medelhavsmuseet houses Sweden's most important archaeological collections of ancient and historical relics from the Mediterranean countries. With its well-balanced selection of artefacts and exceptionally fine collections, the museum is one of the few in the world to give visitors a summary in reasonable time of the Mediterranean countries' rich and exciting history, from the earliest traces of humans in Mesopotamia and Egypt to the early Christian and Islamic cultures. The museum is in central Stockholm, in a former bank built in 1905 with a neo-classical interior unique in Scandinavian architectural history and therefore well worth seeing itself. The museum's Oriental café gives visitors a magnificent view of the Royal palace and centre.
