    Really nice museum with everything from dinosaurs to ants. The film was in the top of the Cosmonova. Clearly worth a visit. Free entry!

    Museum very well structured and organized, we especially love the dinosaur area and on Arctic animals. The Museum features reconstructions with very interesting scenarios to see. It also has a part on human evolution that not always you study. Like all Swedish museums, presents an interactive area where you spend time again. Is a structure suitable for large and small where you will pass an interesting afternoon. To get there you can use both the metro and the bus as it is very well connected. Not much publicized so keep an eye out.

    A very nice museum we visited many times. The children at 4 and 6 love it; Many different interesting exhibits about animals and nature. One can easily go here for a whole day. Great restaurant in the basement. But there are also places where you can eat your own food. For the first time, we took the kids at cosmonova. We saw a film about Africa's wildlife. The kids were totally sold and wanted to see more movies.

    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.
