We took our American cousin for a couple of hours of Swedish history. We strolled in the fantastic park and watched the castles. Some easy and nice hours spent.

Yes you will need to buy boat tickets, the boat ride is 50-60 minutes depending on stops. We had the Stockholm Pass which included free boat fare and all entrance fees at the castle activities.
