  • Free to look at the exhibitions, climate exhibition was the most interesting. Since we were here in the middle of the week so it was very many school classes on site.

  • As it was many years since I was here, it was fun to see it again. But it is hard to know how to go so that you can see everything.

  • Oh Sweden! You are delightful. Your natural history is natural and historical. This museum is such a wonder. There are contemporary exhibits that are interesting for all ages as well as historical exhibits of bizarre creatures that were obviously fabricated for fame. Go here. A trip to Stockholm without this experience is simply incomplete.
  • Wonderful place to go as a kid or an adult and free! Some of the exhibitions lack proper English translations but others are excellent such as the one about the human body. Has lockers for your bags as long as you remember to bring a 5 kronor coin. Also has a brilliant cinema called cosmonaut where the film is projected onto a rounded surface above you, very immersive!
  • Free entry makes this place the first place for an afternoon to escape the cold! Spend about an hour and a half exploring on my own. Really enjoyed the humanoid exhibit, as well as the arctic exhibit! Very well put together, would be great for kids!
  • Great för a curious kid. Free entry and a quite a lot of hands on displays. Parking is limited and costs but not much.
  • Loved It! I could have spent an entire day it's so big. One of my favorite things in Stockholm!
