  • I'm a bit of a natural museum/science centre wonk and visit them in every city I visit. I've worked in several and helped in the design so I'm always looking at how each country interprets and enterta...  more »

  • Not as glorious as New York's Natural History Museum its Scandinavian version is still a lot of fun in three floors. My kids aged between 2 and 7 loved everything from the IMAX-theatre to the Antarcti...  more »

  • This was one of the most fun museums I've ever been to! A lot of interesting exhibitions about nature, animals, humans and planet Earth in general. Learn how human body works, see where and how birds travel, take a look at a whale skeleton, meet dinosaurs, even touch a real meteorite! And it's free! Just one thing: some exhibitions were in Swedish only, it would be nice if those were translated to English as well.
  • Awesome time with the kids, 2 and 4 years old. Some exhibits were a tad dark though which meant the kids looked more at the bright white information screens, despite the fact that they can't read. Really nice staff as well.
  • Not only is it a great museum with exhibits for both young and old. The staff is friendly, the location convenient and the food in the restaurant is good. All in all, a great package. Oh...and the fact that it's free entry doesn't hurt either.
  • English: Tourists that likes to watch movies should try out Cosmonova at the museum. Usually really nice documentaries in a really big theatre! Haven't been to the museum part in over a decade but I did like it when I was younger. No idea how it is now.
  • Fun for the whole family! Education and fun. A very engaging museum where visitors get to interact with exhibits.

Where to stay in Stockholm
