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.

  • It was a short visit to this place, but the kids seemed to have a blast.It is also good if you are in the Vasa Museum area. 
  • The Museum of Pippi Longstocking stockings is not too familiar in Japan, boasts a nationally popular in Sweden. Moomin Park, ideal for families with children.

  • A wonderful fantasy moment in Astrid Lindgren's fairytale world. Wander through all the fairy tales, take the cable car and enjoy a pretend "reality" (a little scary for smaller children) ride on the little guy, Pippi Longstocking's horse, see theatre with Pippi, read a book, take a coffee-everything you could want for a family outing.

  • A must visit if you read Astrid Lindgren books as a kid! But you have to be familiar with most of her works in order to appreciate the place, such as Madicken, Emil, Lionheart Brothers, and Ronya.
  • Quite expensive. 159 sek for adults and 139 sek for children. Not much for adults other than riding the train with your little ones. I would recommend this place for children five and under. Do not bring kids over five otherwise they will be bored.
  • Expensive and crowded. But fun time for the kids. They enjoyed the playground areas and the train ride the most. Big spend-more-money-gift shop which you have to pass thru to get to the back 😕
  • The junibacken was such a lovely experience! I was a bit surprised by the admission cost (159 sek for adults as compared to 120 sek at the nearby vasa museum), but entering the second 'room' it quickly became clear why- the storybook train!!! Such a great and innovative way to introduce people to Swedish children's literature, and I would argue, comparable to Peter Pan's Flight at disneyland. The accompanying cafeteria also had food at reasonable prices, and an amazing view overlooking the harbour. Do go if you're in the area!
  • Could use a face-lift but everybody who likes Astrid Lindgren will enjoy this. Both children and adults.
