The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Östermalm
With its high-end shopping facilities and Michelin-starred restaurants, Östermalm is definitely the poshest part of central Stockholm. Here you will find Stockholm’s most majestic residential buildings, a beautiful market hall from 1888 displaying gourmet foods from around the world and the Swedish Royal Dramatic Theatre with its awe-inspiring architecture. At night, legendary nightclubs make the perfect location to observe the natives (and those aspiring to become natives of this exclusive neighborhood) in their natural habitat and to enjoy the latest produce of the Swedish house music scene.

Suddenly you need to pay a ridiculous price for a very aged collection. I used to go here on rainy days with friends to do something, but this new ticket prices make it 100% not worth it!

Really good displays and highly interactive... We had trouble persuading our five year old to move onto the next activity! We particularly liked the Swedish nature area. A great day out and the real bonus is that this museum is free!

We were hugely impressed by the collection of dinosaur fossils at this wonderful natural history museum. Wooly mammoths, massive aquatic dinosaurs, whales, and other prehistoric creatures were on display in this child-friendly museum. The dinosaur fossil collection is on par with the American Museum of Natural History in NYC, and this is a great place to visit when in Stockholm.

Place it's worth to visit, especially if you have a small child. It's not very big, 2-3 hours would more than enough. The is no entrance fee.

Excellent museum, it was really interesting and great fun. The exhibits are like no other natural history museum I've been to before, instead of animals shown individually here you have animals placed together like they would have been in real life - the leopard posed with one paw clawing a bird, penguins and sea gulls placed with elephant seals on a beach. The wolf display showed how they interacted with others in the pack, with playing wolves, fighting wolves and those caring for their cubs. You get to touch and feel bones, antlers, fur and even the baleen from a whale. Amazing displays and really interesting.

Very interesting museum with a wide range of exhibits. Didn't have enough time to go all the way round but what we saw was fascinating & may well go back to see more of it - it's free!
