Children’s parties

Ever dreamt of having a children’s party at the palace? That dream can come true! At a children’s party in the Royal Armoury, the children get a royal tour of the museum, games and refreshments in our beautiful 18th century stone hall. You can choose between organising the party yourself or having us do it for you.

Option 1:

Leave the party organising to us

We organise refreshments, games and most of the practical side. You can just relax!

Recommended ages

The parties are best suited to children from five to nine.

Party refreshments

Choose between Swedish almond cake with chocolate and crunchy Daim or Vienetta chocolate ice cream. There are also two kinds of biscuits included.

Party times

An hour and 30 minutes plus 15 minutes assembly time. We can organise two children’s parties a day at weekends. The first party at 11.45–13.30 and the second at 14.45–16.30.

Number of participants

Maximum 12 children for the small party and maximum 18 for the large party (including the birthday child). A maximum of 3 adults are welcome at the party to help and support the children. Please respect that the number of adults is limited and that we cannot take any more adults in the venue. Other parents or adults can leave and collect their children at the entrance to the Royal Armoury.

Cleaning

Museum staff handle the washing up and cleaning.

Children’s party prices

SEK 3,500 for a small party (maximum 12 children)
SEK 4,500 kronor for a large party (13-18 children)

The price includes a museum tour, refreshments and games for the children and museum admission for 3 adults.

Option 2:

You do the party organising

You prepare the party in any way you wish. The venue, decorations and table laying are included. A tour of the Royal Armoury is also included, where the children can see a stuffed horse and royal carriages, among other things. You take care of the party yourself, but a museum guide will be on hand and will greet you before the party. The museum guide can also help in taking the children from and to their parents.

Recommended ages

The parties are best suited to children from five to nine.

Party times

You can book the stone hall at weekends from 11.45-13.30. You can get into the venue from 11.00 for any preparations.

Refreshments

You are welcome to take in cakes and biscuits. Unfortunately, it is not possible to take in other food yourself.

Number of participants

Maximum 12 children for the small party and maximum 18 for the large party (including the birthday child). A maximum of 4 adults are welcome at the party to help and support the children. Please respect that the number of adults is limited and that we cannot take any more adults in the venue. Other parents or adults can leave and collect their children at the entrance to the Royal Armoury.

Cleaning

Museum staff handle the washing up and cleaning.

Dress up for the party!

Children are more than welcome to dress up as princes, princesses and knights for party.

Organise games and activities yourself

You, as a parent, handle the games. You can borrow a tape recorder for freeze dance, for example, and we can set up a fish pond game if wanted. We have a list of game suggestions with a royal theme.
