  • Interesting collections about the past, present and future. The best though was the model railway from the 60s that were mostly handmade. Wonderful work!

  • Technical Museum is like paying expensive entrance to a rural auction. Old appliances scattered aimlessly, departments closed, unreadable plates (see photos), small parking, loja restaurant employees and completely inaccurate information; see the image to visualize the difference between 1.8 and 9 in the form of a small and a huge circle. Dear Museum, there is a difference between surface and diameter. Grade 1 is actually too high. Stay away.

  • Good museum for our purposes anyway. A family with children. 150 SEK per adult, children under 7 years free, over 7 years 100 KR. Blend both for adults and children to look at and do. Taking longer than thought, however. We did only 1 floor of 3 at approx. 4 hours (including lunch). There was a great place for kids to play/run by itself on the back at the Mega Mind. The restaurant was good and helpful for our daughter who has food allergies. Worst of all, however, the parking areas. Children car parks just outside technical so we had to ask ourselves far from and it costs $26 per hour. 110 bucks, we laid in for parking. Totally bizarre ...

  • Not really suited for adults but good place for kids. Not very cared of, often it is hard to understand how to interact with something and there is little in term of instructions. I gave up trying some of the objects, it was hopeless. The english label have yellow text, often really hard to read! Go only with kids.
  • A place with lot of inventions and discoveries listed. Lot of chance for learning enthusiasts of past.
  • God I love technology. They've got all sorts of machines and things with gears and whatnot! Seriously though, I love technology. Just love it.
  • Loved it. Lots of things to do for adults and children. Everything is in englis and swedish So no problems Language Wise.
  • Great exhibitions, ultra accessible, kids and family friendly. Plenty of rooms and spaces to host events. The auditorium has state of the art lighting and A/V system.
