This is definitely a place to visit if you go to Stockholm with children (even without them). I would say it is good for kids 3-4 and up, but certainly kids 8 and up will probably take better advantage of most of the exhibitions. Do not miss "Megamind", it is fantastic, so many interactive things to do and super high... More

We were travelling 3 adults with 3 children - 7, 4 and 2 years. All of us enjoyed the visit. We spent several hours trying out old and new machines and technologies. The only minus is that most of the info is in Swedish only - no problem in general also for those, who do not read at all, but... More

The walk there, along the waterfront, was more interesting than the destination. An incoherent medley of objects is NOT a museum. Probably great for kids, but dull for this adult.

Sad to see such a poor execution of what could be an amazing experience. The facility is old, many activity stations are out of order and the whole experience is dated and behind today's best practice with museum experiences. Further, most of the facts and information is only in Swedish, which is not appropriate for a world class city like... More

We were expecting more interactive exhibits with an explanation of physical or technological background and "trick-your-mind" experiments too. Museum provides you with little insight in historical development of technologies, however, in my opinion, it is rather hectic. This museum is suitable for ca 10 YO kids who start to realise wonders of technology and are curious about do-it-yourself experiments and... More

The lower floors contain displays pertaining to the 100 most significant innovations as voted for by the Swedish public. This was nothing short of exceptional: very interesting and quite easy to see 1-2 hours disappearing as you wander through them. One thing I would highlight is that pale green text on a white background is almost illegible to those of... More

First of all this place is good for kids but not for adults. It wasn't that interesting for us. Most of the activities were geared towards kids. I guess we were expecting something more adult-oriented. Otherwise if you have kids with you. This is a good place for them to learn about technology and scientific advancements. 😊

with ca 40% broken exhibits and boring stuff. Haphazard lay-out, no real flow through time / developments, very disjointed and uninspiring. Expensive entry for adults, not value for money. Would not recommend to anyone. Restaurant was fine. Parking costs money.

This museum was museum of the year for Sweden in 2016. It is a great place to spend half or a full day. The exhibits are very informative and educating, but what really steals the show are the interactive exhibits. If you go there with kids expect to spend at least half a day because the interactive exhibits are captivating.... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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 an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.
