HAMN – The Battlefield Museum

C. Alex Goss

Closed until further notice due to the coronavirus, COVID-19. Visit the homepage for further information.

On August 13, 1719, Swedish and Russian troops fought in the Battle of Stäket during the Great Nordic War. The Swedes described the battle as a Swedish victory – while the Russians pronounced themselves as victors. Thanks to seven years of archaeological excavations and new studies of archival material, a different interpretation of the battle has been brought to light. At HAMN you'll learn all about this fascinating story in great detail, but also the story of Nacka itself as the excavations found objects dating back as far as 4 BC. The museum also hosts regular re-enactments of the bloody battle.
