We took our grandchildren here for an afternoon. They have been there twice before but wanted to visit again. This illustrates that it must be both interesting and entertaining. We all enjoyed the visit. Unfortunately when we stopped for refreshments in the restaurant, we were shortchanged by 50kr. I ponted this out and was swiftly given the missing money. Deliberate...

Another great place to visit when you are in Stockholm, especially with kids. A lot of fun and interesting exhibitions all year round, plus 3D cinema with movies about world and nature.

They really try to tell you about Swedish history and culture. The Sami exhibit was thoughtful and thought provoking. Building is a cool piece of architecture. Close to other attractions like ABBA and Vasa museum. Some nice restaurants across the street into the park.

Grate museum to get to know Swedish history. Large galleries, well planned and lit with grate amount of information. There is a good café with food at the first floor. If you´re lucky you can experience some live dancing show or concert by the café.

During my last trip to Stockholm me & my friends decided to get cultured & decided to swing by this museum for the day! It was a fun day out which we topped off with a 4D viewing on comets! There is a lot of walking involved as the museum is deceptively quite large, but it was fun regardless. Note... More

In this historic building on the campus of the University of Stockholm is an incredible natural history museum with two levels of exhibits devoted to Swedish wildlife, gems/minerals, health, the Arctic and more. There is also an IMAX theatre showing movies. Admission is very affordable although IMAX is more. Most exhibits are in Swedish and English. There is a restaurant... More

The museum was so great fun for my children. The dining area is very good and the garden outside is much fun.

My friend and I always visit natural history museums when in a new city and were eager to see what Stockholm's had in offer. From the Centre you'll want to get red line metro to the Universitetet stop to which is then a short walk from the station. (Just flow the signs) Entrance fee is 100 sek and the museum... More
