  • Second visit to Junibacken with 4 and 9 year old kids. Both loved the place, specially the "story train" which we ended doing twice. I think the kids loved the place even more on the second round as t...  more »
  • Very nice, inspired especially fairy tales written by Astrid Lindgren, of which we Italians know especially Pippi Longstocking. In fact we find also a representation of Villa Villekulla, where children can climb and play freely. A fairy tale for children and adults

  • If you have children from 5 to 15 years, then visit the Museum with them simply must! All interactively! All you can touch, climb everywhere, with all that there is to play! Children are likely to want to stay in the museums all day, and adults won't be bored there too-especially adults appreciate travel Tales at a makeshift train! Go you will not regret! On the train there are audio guides in Russian, English, Finnish and shvecom languages.

  • 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.
