Junibacken, Stockholm

4.1
#1 of 6 in Theme Parks in Stockholm County
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.

  • Recommend To Everyone! Museum area, lodge, restaurant-Peppy all leaves a very warm feeling. Café menu is small, but satisfying. We took the meat balls (remember Carlson?)-2porcii, a sandwich with shrimps, chicken in PITA, Caesar, pancakes with cream and jam. It happened at 573 kroner. Drinks are free.

  • Beautiful place for kids to play and experience the world of Astrid Lindgren. Also features a ride for the whole family. Spend a couple of hours here and end with a coffee and a visit in the toy/souvenir shop!
  • My daughter favourite museum. Fantastic place for kids up to around 6 years old. Good restaurant and temporary events
  • This is a playful and imaginative museum for younger kids - my toddler played all day! Staff are wonderful and get right on the same level as the children. The story time train could be a little scary for some kids (they warn you about this), but a really fun treat for most kids (and their grown-ups!)!
  • A must see place for children of all ages. Especially the fairytale train was awesome experience, and there are several languages in which the story is told during the train ride. I spent with my six-year-old more time there than we both expected before hand.
  • Nice place for kids but be careful with the non-guarded cloakroom, my winter coat was stolen there. They don't have video surveillance so there is no chance to recover a stolen item.
