Enter a storyland of children's literature at Junibacken, a museum devoted to famous works for kids, especially those of Astrid Lindgren, who wrote "Pippi Longstocking." This children's museum was opened in 1996 and is one of the city's most-visited sites. In addition to its permanent exhibits dedicated to authors and illustrators, it houses a theater, restaurant, and temporary displays. Seek out the interactive exhibits, like the storybook square, where each house represents a different Swedish children's writer, or the train ride ending at the home of Lindgren's most famous character--Pippi Longstocking. Using our custom trip planner, Stockholm attractions like Junibacken can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • I went with my six year old son (who speaks only English). It was a sunny day in late May and it was fairly busy but this didn't bother him and he loved it, I reckon he is approaching the top end of the age range however. The story train was excellent, despite us not knowing the author or the back stories beforehand but it seems timing the ride is important. First time we went there was a 30 minute queue, so we went to get an ice cream and noticed a show starting. As the show progressed we went back and the train queue has almost vanished.
  • Great for kids, still good enough for a quick visit for adults. If you have a Stockholm Pass it is free and you may give it a quick look at least as the stories of Lindgren's books are retold really lovely and heart-warming!
  • Great place for young kids. Cool story train that has audio options for many languages inc Estonian.
  • Loved this place! Reminds me of my childhood and was so glad to hear Astrid Lindgren's voice! Was so great!
  • Good place to take the kids. Does get ridiculously busy, so good to get there at opening. My 3 year old thought the story train was a little scary (lots of dark areas), but seemed to handle it ok.

Where to stay in Stockholm

Glitzy Stockholm provides an abundance of high-end four-star hotels and international chains that come with a reputation of being pricey and feature a distinguished Scandinavian design. You can save yourself a little money by searching out the discounts these hotels often offer. If you're looking for something more affordable, consider the medium-priced hotels north of the Old Town. The least-expensive options lie near Central Station. Since offerings tend to be more affordable the farther you go from the city center, you'll serve yourself well to find a spot near public transport. Hostels in the city tend to fill up fast, so book online in advance. Many of hotels offer the
