You need a couple of hours. There is so much stuff to see there about the history of Liechtenstein from thousands of years back until the last decades and also about the flora and fauna.

Great museum, plenty of items. Very friendly staff. You can spend around one to four hours here, depending on how much interest you have...

Good information but could be a little more organised with regards to how the museum flows. We got lost in history several times ending up searching for the next bit and missing some important details.

Very varied collection, not everything as interesting as the next. I liked their stuffed animal collection. If you can't read German, then it is very boring, their English audioguide doesn't actually explain anything of what you are seeing. It just tells you a general story related to the room you are in.

A great place to learn about the history of Liechtenstein. It has various section detailing about different eras of history, different cultures, different arts and all. It also has art gallery and some of the exhibitions which keeps on happening time to time. Do visit but visit with 4 to 5 hours in hand if you want to fully explore the place.

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
