Karlson-on-the-roof was my favorite book so I was very excited and my kids too.The museum is pretty small but you can't skip it - it is lovely and fun experience. Note the prices in the restaurant are low so there is a good place for family launch.

Visited Junibacken after being tempted by the Moomin exhibition and the rain encouraging us to "go indoors" Went with my boyfriend, neither of us have children to accompany us (first mistake) but I quite like Moomins and was interested in Astrid Lingren too. I like children don't get me wrong, but the place was full of wild screaming children and... More

Very good attraction for kids to experience Astrid Lindgren's stories. The "Sagotorget" (story train) is a must. My 1.5 yr old didn't understand much but he looked like he was having a good time! There is also a restaurant/cafe on the premises. Junibacken parking area was terrible! Tight spots where you can barley get out of your car. On top... More

Junibacken is an excellent tribute to Astrid Lindgren and all her wonderful characters. Its's a very interactive museum, and enjoyable for children and grownups alike. Mind you, it's very expensive though, so it may not be for everybody which lower the rate a little.

We didn't even know all the characters (except Pippy Longstocking) but it was still a magical place, the kind of place where you kind of wish you were a kid too! All kind of little kid sized nooks and crankies to explore.........too small for you to follow them into, but don't worry they are safe! Wonderful food at the cafe,... More

Based on the stories of Astrid Lindgren’s this is a very cute “museum” for children under 5 years of age. It is very nicely done and there are lots of activities for little people to do. Children will enjoy the experience even if they do not know the stories by Lindgren. We had the Stockholm card so we decided to... More

It had to be a children theater based on stories of Astrid Lindgren, but turned out to be a place to make whatever to entertain kids. Woudnt recommend it unless you have children under 5.

We had the Stockholm card and on the map we got with it was it included but when we entered junibacken they told us we had to pay because it was included in 2014 and not in 2015. We payed 270 SEK and that was a reduced price because there was an attraction that was not going at that moment.... More

We bought the yearly pass while it was on offer for one adult and our 1.5 year old. It was good fun for our son and they change the theme and attractions in the main room once or twice a year. Children will love it even if they are not familiar with all the stories. The theatre productions are entertaining.... More

The children loved the Place and so did I. The whole Astrid Lindgren world was presented in the same Place. It is guite expensive to visit the Place with a few children. And I did not like the big shop which you have to pass when going from one Place to another. Difficult for children and difficult for adults to... More
