Welcome to HAMN the Battlefield museum in Nacka
Seven years of archaeological excavations on the battlefield around Baggensstäket in Nacka has resulted in Sweden’s first battlefield museum – HAMN. The museum opened on June 1, 2014.
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 archaeological excavations and new studies of archival material, a different interpretation of the battle has been brought to light.
The HAMN museum consists of nearly a thousand square meters of captivating history told through unique objects, images, documents, audio, and films. The exhibition also tells the story of Fisksätra, a modern suburb built in the 1960s and 1970s, which became Sweden’s most densely populated area with people from a great number of different nations.
The exhibition at HAMN tells the local history of Nacka, beginning in the 4th century AD and all through the Swedish so-called Million Programme in the mid-20th century. Artefacts from the Viking era and the 18th century are displayed.
