#1 of 7 in Theme Parks in Stockholm County
Children’s Museum · Theme Park
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.

  • I've visit Junibacken 5 times during the years. Some times with kids, one with work and one time with adults (friends) We've have a blöast everytime. So if you like children books, mainly Astrid...  more »
  • Good for kids for a few hours. Cafeteria is so-so. We brought snacks but they got hungry. The storybook ride was a bit dramatic for the young ones.  more »
  • This is a must for a family with young kids, we really enjoyed the soft play area and the kids loved the train ride which was like being in a fairy tale. Lovely lunch downstairs as well  more »
  • We LOVE this children's museum! The exhibits are well done, and the ride is lovely (although some parts can be a bit scary for little ones). The entry fee is a bit pricey so it's worth getting a year pass if you plan on going more than twice.
  • Lovely place to visit with pre-teen children. Some fun play rooms and areas. We specially liked the story train that is available in multiple languages. There are lockers where you can keep your stuff. Ticket allows you to reenter so you can go out to eat or have picnic if your stay longer. The plays are only in Swedish but if your kids know the story, then it is still interesting to watch.
  • A children's park that has Astrid Lindgren's works as its theme, all beautiful but the 5 stars deserve them for the Storybook Train, suitable for adults and children and the audio is available in various languages. The children will love it very much, as they will stay beyond the tolerance of their parents.
  • It is a good place to spend half a day. Just make sure you don't miss the shows and the book reading. Also there is a ride where you can see miniature scenes from her stories.
  • Great for small kids, we loved to explore the fairytale ride. Since everything is miniature it might be boring those parents who wants to play with their child. Nice location, close to everything.
