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...

It's a nice one, however compared with others that I saw its a bit passive with very few interactive experiences. Moreover no guides that can explain and demonstrate things. The passive parts though contained animals, from the see, from the earth which was interesting but as I said too monotonic, a bit boring. The 3D IMAX wax not 3D, a... More

This was my first trip to Museum of Natural History, Stockholm. It is amazing given the amount of artifacts available. One would need well over 2-3 hours. I missed the planetarium, but sure there will another time. Start with Swedish nature and then go to polar region. The Blue-whale will definitely take your breath away.

First time visitors should focus on the permanent exhibitions; The Swedish Nature and the Human Animal, they are fantastic! I visited with a group of people without the Swedish language and they loved it!

I came here on a break from a recent business trip and was very very pleasantly surprised. There are some fabulous exhibits and very well laid out and presented. There are also many types of animals all well preserved and the museum has placed many in their own exhibits. Thus for the polar region there are great displays of the... More

This is a great place to visit to see and learn more about Scandinavian history. All the little marquee's and miniatures about Swedish life and history are here... you learn so much, got me totally intrigued with their history. Take a good half day to visit this place, it is quite big!

I've wanted to come here for quite some time as I've heard it is THE museum to visit in Stockholm so my expectations were high. The building itself is beautiful but the exhibitions are not very well organised. They are sort of seperated by themes but all the rooms have like three themes in them so it can be a... More

This is one of my favorite places in all of Stockholm. I always have a good time when I go here and it's fitting for small children up to old people. The 3D dome is one of my favorites.
