Welcome to the Swedish Customs Museum!
Tuesday, Wednesday, Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
In our museum we have a permanent exhibition with displays showing:
The so-called "Lilla tullen", (viz. Little Toll or Inland Toll) in Stockholm, an inland fiscal system abolished in 1810. Entry with commercial goods was by law restricted to a small number of town gates. Various sites in Stockholm still bear names alluding to this old levying procedure, e.g. Skanstull, Hornstull, Roslagstull etc. The Swedish word tull in these place names means that a Customs post was once located there.
The maritime Customs organization in Stockholm, responsible for the levying of Customs duty on foreign trade.
Exhibition stands and displays showing working conditions and settings of the Swedish Customs Service in former times.
Smuggling and Customs control.
Smuggling and anti-smuggling measures of course dominate a large section of the museum. In addition there are always various temporary exhibitions going on.
