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...

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
