The museum is rather small but nice and surely can be interesting also for children. There are several activities, like e.g. creating a photofit picture. You need about 90 minutes for a visit.

Interesting museum both for kids and adults. Has some pure history info, but also important events and tries to talk a lot about perception on police force and how it's necessary. Child friendly.

We spent a couple of hours at Polismuseet. It's very much oriented on a Swedish audience. Still good fun for young ages. Some parts are translated in English for older kids. Our kids enjoyed playing around the police car, motor bike and wearing uniforms. Good...More

Visited as I have been a policeman for 29 years and it is always interesting to see how it works in other countries. This is a small museum and has a play room for children, which unfortunately had things that were too small for me...More

Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland
extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of
nature and an abundance of museums, while being
located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city
center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take
endless walks through a beautiful park landscape
without having to leave the city, but also offers an
incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as
