Came purely for the Cosmonova, and although the museum is situated a way out of town it was easy to reach via the Metro. Unfortunately we come to the museum last after a few other museums and were quite tired, too tired to walk round all the museum exhibits we had a look in at the dinosaurs and then grabbed... More

We entered the museum at the time of opening. Not much people and we could easily go through the exhibits calmly. Very nice and tasting lunch. Simple but well presented. We then went to the creative workshop and made dinosaurs.

The museum was very nice with quite a few exhibits on both mammal and marine life. There was also an exhibit about the "human animal". Buy a museum/cosmonova ticket combo to save money. I don't think you can buy these at the automated ticket machines. Go to the counters. The Cosmonova (IMAX theatre) was a bit of a let down.... More

This is a great half day adventure for families with kids. The museum has a nice big area with animals in the forest and in the water, and also some small "activities" for adults and kids to do (for example to let the kids go look for a hidden red feather or through a memory game try to recognize different...

You can easily get there with metro from Central Station. The building is huge and beautiful from the outside. You need to take a number and wait for a while until you buy a ticket. We took tickets for exhibitions and Cosmonova as well. I can highly recommend Cosmonova and I think it is a must when you are there.... More

As I've mentioned previously on here, I'm not a tourist-y person but when in Rome...Me and my good friend went here mostly for the Cosmonova (if that has a separate page on here, I'll review that there) which was a fascinating cinematic experience. English translator devices were thankfully available for that and were free of charge. We saw the space... More

Hi! I’m glad you had a nice experience at Cosmonova, but we’re of course sorry to hear that your expectations weren´t quite fulfilled by our exhibitions. We gladly welcome you back in April when our big exhibition on evolution, fossil and dinosaurs opens again after the ongoing reconstruction. The one you visited, MiniDino is a temporary one. Best regards Caroline/NRM More

I was here on a very interesting guided tour about the arctics and antarctica and what impact the rising temperature on the globe have on these areas. The guide was very knowledgeable and the exhibition was cool. Afterwords I took a look at the minerals and meteorites in the collection.

Many people walk right past this amazing gem on their way to other popular attractions. This museum is a wonderful gem: permanent exhibitions are rich and fascinating. Temporary space is cleverly used so that repeat visits will be different. Don't forget to notice the building itself, which is amazing inside and out.

In this museum they have the largest collection of stuffed death animals I have ever seen. Very cool museum for couples with children. We were at the sea rex 3d movie but I would not recommend this one! Downside were the minimum of English translations and information on the exhibits!

This place is ever so slightly away from the regular Stockholm attractions, which worked in our favour as it was very quiet when we visited. What a gem it is! Superb displays, with Swedish and English texts. A fabulous bird collection and until January 2015 a superb Raptor exhibition. The Scandinavian animals section is also fantastic. One of the best...
