  • A great place to explore with Swedish fairy tales and children's literature. Everything is very well arranged and organized. Journey into an amazing booth, especially when she suddenly takes off or passes through the room. Like anything special and interesting. It is a pity that very quickly takes the entire Museum and works with 10 to 17 only.

  • I am 68 years old got a "kick" to go the story train. Wonderful well-made environments from Astrid's various stories. What was most surprising was that you got to go "lift" i.e. the carriages moved from the ground floor up to the 2nd floor and down again and all the time in Astrid's world. It was light and it was dark but still not scary for children. I went with my grandchildren that is 1.5 years and 3 years, and they had an eye on what was happening. The story train is the highlight on a visit here. For the rest, it is mostly a trial and a playground for children of different ages. All indoors.

  • Why do we then came here all the family and both parents and teens and 6-year-old daughter. But the name "Museum" is not appropriate, this well is not a museum. A location for the kiddies. Is expensive. Adults out there doing nothing at all. Adult as accompanying exclusively need. Inside all sorts of lazelki on different subjects, houses, cars, slides, etc. The museum itself is riding on a cart through the scenery to fairy tales writer and all. I'd recommend this place to divide, adults send in the nearby Museum of Vassa, and children with one adult in a guilty Junibakken. And all will be well.

  • Very beautiful and magical place for people in all ages. The world of Astrid Lindgren compacted can be viewed by walkind into different roma, teater or train.
  • The most magic place I've seen in Stockholm so far. Absolutely loved the train ride and the view from the windows. Really cool place to visit with your kids.
  • A nice place to experience the worlds of famous nordic fairy tales. Busy place with alot of tourists around june and july. The fairy tale train at the end is worth the wait.
  • 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.
